Child Care Licensing

El Dorado, Kansas – PROTECT BUTLER COUNTY CHILREN!! It’s the LAW!  K.S.A. 65-501: Kansas law requires that out-of-home child care facilities be licensed.  Child care licensing is required to protect the health, safety, and welfare of children receiving care away from their parents and home.  Unlicensed child care providers are not authorized to operate child care facilities.  These illegal child care providers have not been inspected or are regulated to meet the minimum standards of care for the health and safety of children.  Background checks have not been performed to make sure that persons with felony convictions are not caring for children.  Penalties for operating an illegal child care in Butler County can lead to fines or criminal prosecution. Please report Illegal Child Care with the Butler County Health Department 206 N. Griffith, Suite B, El Dorado, Kansas, 67042 at 316-321-3400 or the Kansas Department of Health and Environment at 785-296-1270.
