Daycare and School Regulations
Laramie County schools serving food and Child Care Centers (CCC) serving a meal must follow the same food service rules as restaurants.
Childcare facilities in homes (FCCH or FCCC) must follow specific food safety rules but are not as stringent as restaurants and childcare centers.
If you are a school or child care facility operating in the county on a private well or sewer system, you’ll need to meet all applicable rules and regulations regarding water testing and septic system sizing. For questions, please contact Environmental Health at 307.633.4090.
Opening a New Child Care Facility
If you’re opening a new child care facility, you’ll need to:
- Schedule a pre-application meeting with the Laramie County Planning and Development Office
- Contact the Wyoming Department of Family Services for information on becoming a licensed child care provider
- Obtain a State of Wyoming food license application by calling Environmental Health at 307.633.4090
In additional, both the City of Cheyenne and Laramie County may require proper zoning. To request a zoning certificate, contact City of Cheyenne Planning and Development.
