Child Care Referral Program Disclaimer
All of the referred providers are licensed by the Division of Child Care. Beyond verifying licenses, our office does not endorse or recommend any providers, nor do we monitor quality or screen provider files. Only the parent can determine whether a particular child care arrangement is appropriate for their child. It is up to the parent to monitor any child care setting that they choose for their child. Locating the best possible care for your child can take time. "Working Your Way through the Child Care Maze" can be used as a guide when interviewing and visiting providers. We highly encourage you to ask for and to check references. Never leave your child in any center or home if you are told that parents are not welcome to drop in at any time, unannounced. Never leave your child anywhere without having spent some time with the prospective child care provider. The Colorado Division of Child Care in Denver keeps a file including licensing records and information about complaints and violations for each licensed home and center. These files are open to the public, and we encourage you to take the time to request a Summary Report and the most recent Report of Inspection on the providers you are considering prior to making a decision about your child's care. The Summary Report will list complaints and/or negative licensing actions that a provider has had. A more detailed report can also be requested specific to a given complaint number. To request these licensing reports, call 1-800-799-5876 or http://www.cdhs.state.co.us/childcare/
