Washington County Public Health staff partners with child care facilities, offering tools and information to help them succeed in their child care business while protecting the health of the children.
We are committed to communicating well and often with child care providers and conducting timely and thorough sanitation inspections. Our staff are provided with ongoing training opportunities to make sure they are up to date on the most current sanitation practices.
Child care facility operators can download Safe'N'Sound (Seguros y Sanos, 安然无恙, Целый и невредимый), a resource guide with child care health and safety tips. We also offer Keep Me Home If (Déjame en Casa Si), which covers which symptoms require a child to stay home.
