Understanding the Online Compliance


The KDHE administers the child care licensing law and issues licenses for child care facilities. The main purpose of child care regulation is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of children receiving care away from their home.

Utilize the system to review the licensing history of a child care facility regulated by KDHE. Once your search returns records, select the correct facility. The Child Care Facility Report will be displayed. There is an option to print the report (top right corner). Information presented on the website is public record provided by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE).

Three years of compliance history is provided for each facility. Therefore, information contained in the report may not reflect the complete history of a facility’s compliance. Additional information and records may be available. Public records contained in the file of a child care facility may be requested from KDHE in accordance with the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) pursuant to K.S.A. 45-215 et seq. Disclosure of certain information is prohibited pursuant to K.S.A. 65-525 and other statutes regarding confidential information. For more information about Child Care Licensing and the requirements for child care facilities, please visit the Child Care Licensing website.
