Looking for care?
Please be advised that the need for child care is
extremely high with very little infant availability.
We recommend you ask about waitlists and
resubmit your form every few weeks as providers'
statuses can change at any time.
What is a family child care provider?
We provide care for 8 children inside our home.
Some of us are licensed as a large family child care and
we can provide care for up to 12 children.
Our homes are set up as learning environments and the space is designed for the children in our care. We are teachers, and we spend countless hours researching, learning and setting up a great environment for the children.
We are required to complete first aid, CPR, SIDS, and additional hours of training in several content areas. Our homes are also inspected every year. The inspection is conducted by the state licensing department to ensure the safety of your child!
Please be sure that the provider you are contacting is licensed and has a license number posted. The Calvert County Family Daycare Association will only connect you with licensed family child care provider.
ALL THE FAMILY CHILD CARE PROVIDERS IN OUR ASSOCIATION ARE LICENSED WITH THE MARYLAND STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION'S OFFICE OF CHILD CARE
