DHS' first priority is to protect the health and safety of all children and families served in child care programs statewide, before and during the current global pandemic. Our Office of Child Care staff, including the licensing team, is vital to that goal along with our vendors, other DHS workers and community partners who help extend our reach.
There isn't anything in the child care industry, which is key to the State's economy, that this office doesn't have a hand in or oversee, advocate for and supply support to. Much of this work is in addition to administering the Starting RIght Child Care Assistance Program.
The following is information and resources for the State's child care providers.
