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. In 2001, all early childhood programs were reorganized by the Department into the Division of Early Childcare and Licensing (now: Early Childhood Division).
