For Child Care Providers
"Helping Caregivers to Meet Requirements and Offer a Higher Quality of Service."
After an interruption in services, the Maryland Child Care Resource Network (MCCRN) is once again offering TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE! These services will be available to existing and potential providers (family child care and center-based), Head Start programs, nursery schools, cooperatives, drop-in centers and playgroups, community and non-profit organizations, community groups, employers, and public agencies committed to expanding child care resources.
Technical assistance in MCCRN has evolved to now encompass a standard core of services to include: licensing and compliance issues, behavioral issues, and children with special needs. Caregivers experiencing these types of issues in their programs, or having questions regarding any of these three areas are encouraged to contact their local Child Care Resource and Referral Center for additional information on services and resources available in their particular region.
Information and technical assistance regarding starting, expanding, and/or operating a child care center or family child care home is available at this link http://www.mdchildcare.org/mdcfc/for_providers/childcare.html. There you will also find information and assistance for child care providers in the process of achieving and applying for their Credential and/or Program Accreditation.
