CHILD CARE LICENSING

Welcome to Utah's Child Care Licensing!


Vision: Access to safe, healthy child care for Utah families.

Mission:To support the child care community by protecting the health and safety of children in child care programs we oversee. This is accomplished by:

  • Establishing, monitoring, and assessing health and safety standards;
  • Training, guiding, and supporting providers in meeting the established standards; and
  • Providing the public with accurate information about child care standards, processes, and provider compliance history.

LICENSING IS THE FOUNDATION FOR QUALITY!

Fingerprint Form

The fingerprint form is now generated through the provider's Child Care Licensing Portal. A "Download Fingerprint Form" button will appear after a background check form is authorized. When fingerprints are required for the covered individual, the person who authorized the background check form is to click that button, print the downloaded form, and give the form to the individual to hand to the techician capturing their fingerprints.

New Staffing Allowances
for Licensed Center Based Providers

In an effort to help with staffing, we are allowing the following until the necessary rule changes are made:

  • The director designee must be at least 18 years old.
  • Caregivers who are 16 or 17 years old can have unsupervised access to children if:
    -- They are not volunteers,
    -- They are not left unsupervised for more than 2 consecutive hours per group of children, and
    -- The director or director designee is at the facility or on the off-site activity.
Checking IDs

During inspections, licensors will ask to see a government-issued photo ID (or a copy of that ID) for each covered individual. This is to verify the identity of the covered individual and to ensure all covered individuals passed the background check.
