Child Care Facilities

PLEASE NOTE: Effective July 20, 2020, the Department of Public Health office at 1650 Boone’s Lick Road will close for several months to enable building improvements. The department is now operating at a temporary facility, located at 1551 Wall St., in St. Charles. For assistance with department programs, please call 636-949-7400 or utilize online services.

Thank you for your patience.

Child care facilities are regulated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services’ Bureau of Child Care and include daycare centers, group homes, family child care homes, Head Start programs and church operated daycare operations. Additionally, facilities operating in unincorporated areas of St. Charles County may require a business permit and/or a conditional use permit from the Department of Community Development. Those choosing to operate within a St. Charles County municipality should contact their respective City Hall regarding business operations.
