Health Requirements

Licensed childcare facilities are required to follow the Colorado Regulations Governing the Health and Sanitation of Child Care Facilities and maintain up-to-date immunization records. Additionally, prior to the construction, remodeling, or modification of a childcare center, contact the Pueblo City-County Health Department. For new construction or extensive remodel, a plan review packet must be filled out and submitted for review, along with the fee associated with the review. Once construction is completed an onsite opening inspection and approval is required by the health department.
