For Child Care Providers

Child Care Regulations

Maryland has one of the best child care systems in the nation -- thanks, in part, to our strong state regulations.

If you have a question about a state requirement -- adult/child ratios, staff training, or health and safety procedures ­ you can check the Maryland regulations.
