Licensing Classes

The first step to starting a child care facility is to attend an orientation meeting. To start a home day care - register for Child Care Classes and sign up for Information Meeting (orientation). To start a child care center - call Eldonna Chesnut at (913) 477-8366 to set up your individual orientation. 

The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment's Child Care Licensing division works with all child care facilities in Johnson County. According to Kansas Child Care Licensing Law, anyone providing care for children other than those related by blood, marriage, or adoption, must be licensed with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
