Parent’s Guide to Licensed Child Care Centers Download Parent’s Guide to Licensed Child Care Centers



The purpose of this guide is to inform parents about state child care licensing rules for child care centers. The Child Care Licensing Program is a regulatory agency which conducts regular inspections of and investigates complaints at licensed child care centers. We encourage parents to discuss any questions or concerns they may have with the center owner or director. Parents may contact Child Care Licensing with questions or concerns by calling one of the regional offices listed below:


Salt Lake Office: 801-273-6617 or toll free at 1-888-287-3704


Provo Office: 801-374-7688 or toll free at 800-894-2588


For a complete copy of all of the center rules, please visit the Child Care Licensing Program website (health.utah.gov/licensing).


The Utah Office of Child Care is also a good resource for information about child care. They offer a free parent guide for selecting child care. They can also direct you to your local Child Care Resource & Referral Agency, which offers free referrals to parents looking for a child care provider. You can reach the Office of Child Care by calling 801-526-4340 in Salt Lake, or toll free statewide at 800-622-7390. You can also visit their website (careaboutchildcare.utah.gov).
