Douglas County residents who want to operate a child care home need to attend a Child Care Licensing Orientation Class. The class is a requirement before an application can be submitted. During the class, participants will learn about the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s regulations, including paperwork requirements and the inspection process.
Classes typically are from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of the month. Cost is $40 plus applicable County Fee of $100 (total $140), and fees are due by noon the Friday before the class. To register for an orientation class, submit the form below.
