Steps You Must Take for Licensing and Compliance in Nevada >>>
Step 1 - Review the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 432A - Services and Facilities for the Care of Children
Step 2 - Through the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health-Child Care Licensing: a State license is required to operate a Child Care Facility. One portion of the licensing requirement includes a fire and life safety inspection. On behalf of the DPBH, the Division of the State Fire Marshal or his appointed designee will conduct the initial inspection and all required subsequent annual inspections. A license issued by the DPBH to operate a Child Care Facility is contingent upon a satisfactory fire and life safety inspection and issuance of a Certificate of Compliance. You can contact DPBH at: Northern Nevada Office (775) 684-4463 and Southern Nevada (702) 486-3822 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 3 - It is your responsibility to request a childcare inspection through the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division. Please remit the completed Child Care Inspection Request Form and the fee associated with your facility's physical address zip code listed on the 2nd and 3rd page of the request to NSFM, 107
Jacobsen Way, Carson City, NV 89711. You may also email the request to us, but you will need to also attach a filled out credit card form listed below with your request. Upon our receipt of the completed packet and payment, you will then be placed on an
inspection list. Please allow approximately
30-45 days for this process. Go here to get the Child Care Inspection Request Form and the One Time Payment Credit Card Authorization Form.
Additionally if you are “new construction” or “remodeling” the facility, please
contact the Nevada State Fire Marshal Fire Protection Engineering Bureau for those requirements. You can call them at (775) 684-7510.
