The Maryland Child Care Credentialing Program is a voluntary program that recognizes child care providers who go beyond the requirements of State licensing and registration regulations.

Training is offered in six content areas:

  • C-Curriculum
  • D-Child Development
  • H-Health, Safety, and Nutrition
  • L-Community
  • P-Professionalism
  • S-Special Needs

In order to participate in the program, you must submit a completed application and all required documentation to the Maryland State Department of Education, Office of Credentialing. Contact the Office of Child Care at 301-237-1414
