Child Care Licensing

All licensed child care facilities in Nevada are currently regulated by one of two licensing entities; the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) - Child Care Licensing Unit (State) or Washoe County Human Services Agency - Child Care and Early Childhood Services. The DPBH - Child Care Licensing Unit licenses, regulates and monitors all facilities located outside Washoe County. The DPBH enforces the state child care licensing regulations, which are the minimum requirements for child care in Nevada. The regulations for child care facilities in Washoe County must meet, but can exceed, the requirements set forth in the state child care licensing regulations.
