Eagle County contracts with the Colorado Department of Human Services to license child care programs. All types of child care facilities (centers, family child care homes and after school programs) are monitored to ensure that they follow specific licensing rules and operating procedures.
Family child care homes are an option for many families in Eagle County. It is also a viable home business for people who enjoy working with children. The county offers free classes for individuals who are interested in becoming licensed to provide child care in their homes. For more information call 970-328-2615.
