Check KDHE website for info on day care providers

  • Published Monday, June 25, 2012, at 6:28 a.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: Information about child care facilities, including day care providers, licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Why you’d want it: To learn whether a provider you are considering is licensed and whether the center ever has been cited for non-compliance with a state law or if a complaint has been filed against the center. History is available for the past three years.

Where you get it: Go online to www.kdheks.gov/bcclr/. Click on the “Child Care and Early Education Portal” link. Then click on the “Search for Child Care Facility Compliance Information” link. You will be able to search by provider/owner’s name or facility name. If you want to get a list of all providers in a city, leave those fields blank and search by city only.

How much the record will cost: The information is free.
