Child Care Provider Resources and Services

The health and well being of children is important for growth and development, which is why the Snohomish Health District works to ensure health and safety at Snohomish County child cares and preschools. Our services are targeted at child care businesses and providers. For more information about our program activities, please see our Child Care Health Outreach Program annual report (PDF) or check out our program brochure (PDF). We offer free consultations on a variety of health, safety, and nutrition topics.
