Child Care Providers

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 or check out our program brochure here. We offer FREE consultations on a variety of health, safety, and nutrition topics.

For help finding a child care or day care in your area, Child Care Aware of Washington provides information and referrals. They are available by calling 1.800.446.1114 and online at

To make sure a child care or day care provider is licensed, and review other licensing information including any founded complaints, visit the Department of Early Learning. Here's an overview of the different types of child care options. Some are regulated by the state - requiring licensing - and some are not.
