Child Care

Caregiver and Child

Section 25-1.5-101(1)(h) of the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) provides the Division of Environmental Health and Sustainability with the authority to establish and enforce sanitary standards for child care facilities in the State of Colorado.  Utilizing this authority, the division promulgated the Rules and Regulations Governing the Health and Sanitation of Child Care Facilities in the State of Colorado.  The most current version of these regulations was adopted in January of 2005.  These regulations are enforced by the Division in Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Garfield, Grand, Mineral, Moffat, Rio Blanco, Rio Grande and Saguache counties. Local health agency personnel inspect child care facilities in all other counties

in the state through a delegation of authority.  Inspections of child care facilities defined by 26-6-102(1.5), (2.5)(a), (5), (5.1), (8), (9), (10)(a), C.R.S. are required every two years, however, inspections may be conducted more frequently based on an assessment of risk.
