Why do I need the 90-Hour Certification?

The 90-Hour Child Care Certification in Maryland is a pre-service training program that prepares individuals to work as lead teachers in child care centers. The program covers topics such as child development, early childhood education, classroom management, and health and safety. If you wish to be a lead teacher in a childcare program this is a certificate you must obtain.

By completing the 90-Hour Child Care Certification, you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful lead teacher in a child care center. You will also be better prepared to meet the high standards set by the MSDE.

In addition to the requirements set by the MSDE, many childcare centers also require their lead teachers to have the 90-Hour Child Care Certification. This is because they believe that the certification is a sign of quality and commitment to providing high-quality care to young children.
