Environmental Health Specialists provide inspections for licensed child care facilities and for child care providers registered with the Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP). Our job is to help providers understand disease prevention and general hygenic practices for their clients. If you see something in a child care facility that concerns you please call the Idaho CareLine (dial 2-1-1).
