Health Inspections for Child Care Facilities

Health inspections are required for all Boulder County licensed child care facilities. We strive to make the inspections less regulatory and more educational. Inspections are based on the criteria found in our Health Inspection Form.

Playground safety inspections can also be included, if requested. To request a playground inspection, please call 303-413-7502.

Frequency of Inspections

Programs will be visited at least once every two years.
