Idaho law sets the basic framework for daycare licensing, which is administered by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare in conjunction with local fire departments and health districts. Local city and county governments can establish and enforce their own daycare licensing regulations, as long as the licensing requirements are equal to or more stringent than state license provisions.
Who is required to be licensed?
Provide care for seven (7) or more children and receive compensation for even one of those children.
Note: You may have local ordinances or participate in programs which require you to be licensed.
