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

If you are concerned about an aspect of your child care situation – the adult/child ratio, the staff training, or the health and safety procedures – you can check the Maryland regulations, where you will find specifications about many aspects of operation.

If you think a child care program is not in compliance with the regulations or your concern was not adequately addressed by the National Resource Center website, contact your local child care resource center (CCRC). The staff at the CCRC may advise you to contact the regional Office of Child Care.
