Mission:  The Wyoming Department of Family Services is responsible for licensing child care facilities and serves as the lead agency for the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant.
 
Focus: The focus of the Division of Early Childhood is on our customers: children, parents, providers and policy makers. We work collaboratively with other partners to deliver services in the most effective manner.
 
Our Commitment:
  •  ensuring that children are cared for in safe child care environments;
  • ensuring youth in out of home placement facilities are cared for in safe and healthy environments;
  • low income families receive assistance to pay for the cost of child care while they are working to achieve self-sufficiency;
  • child care providers receive training and supports necessary to improve the quality of their early care and education programs; and
  • policy makers have the information necessary to make informed decisions
  • provide quality resources and referral services
