Child Care Facilities

Health and sanitation requirements for operation and maintenance are established by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and regulated by San Juan Basin Public Health.

  1. Inspections

San Juan Basin Public Health's Environmental Health program staff work with childcare facilities and summer camps by providing both consultations and regulatory inspections. Facilities are inspected per the Colorado Rules and Regulations Governing the Health and Sanitation of Child Care Facilities. Critical violations are those that are more likely to cause illness.

One inspection may not represent the overall, long-term safety practices of a facility. On any given day, a facility may have greater or fewer violations than noted in the most recent regulatory inspection.

Inspections are public records, and a copy of an official inspection report may be obtained through an Open Records Request.
