Child Care and Child Care Licensing
There are many excellent child care providers in Sherman County.
While the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), in conjunction with local health departments, seeks to assure that child care sites are safe and healthy places for children, the regulations for providers are only minimum standards.
Many other things go into making a good child care choice. This means parents have a large responsibility in selecting a child care site they feel good about, can trust, is safe, and is the right fit for their child.
Here are some resources that will help you in your childcare search:
Contact Child Care Aware for childcare information.
