Boise Child Care
Boise Child Care serves as a central resource for local parents and providers. Parents can find providers in their area, learn tips in choosing child care and seek additional information on healthy initiatives for their children. Providers will find information for applications for licenses, licensing requirements, training resources and healthy initiative resources for their facility.
We believe that Boise’s children are among its most valuable assets – that is why the work you do is so vital to our community. The goal of this website is to provide you with the necessary resources to successfully meet all the city's licensing requirements. Additionally, we are proud to offer training and other resources to continue your education.See More

New Licensing Requirements
Central Registry Check
New federal and state regulations require a Central Registry check for everyone applying for or renewing an application for a child care facility and/or worker license.
- Applicants must submit a completed form from each state they have lived within the past 5 years.
- The City of Boise is aligned with these regulations and now requires all applicants to provide proof of a Central Registry check.
