OFFICE HOURS TO DROP-OFF PAPERWORK IS FROM MONDAY – FRIDAY FROM 1:00 PM TO 4:00 PM. FOR ALL OTHER INQUIRES, PLEASE SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT. THANK YOU!


IMPORTANT NOTICE!  The FBI has moved to an all-electronic criminal background check (CBC) application process and no longer accepts hard-copy fingerprint cards.  Because the Maryland Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) follows FBI guidelines, the use of hard-copy CBC applications at the State level is also being phased out.  Instead, all CBC applicants are being encouraged to submit their applications electronically.  However, hard-copy applications will still be accepted by CJIS if electronic submission is not possible.  Click here for a list of State-approved private electronic fingerprinting services and State-operated electronic fingerprinting locations.  Electronic applications may also be submitted through many State and local police agencies.  Child care programs that have their own State-certified electronic fingerprinting equipment and operators may continue to submit CBC applications.

Online Licensing Inspection Results
Visit the Office of Child Care's online child care licensing inspection results site – www.CheckCCMD.org!  The site offers detailed compliance findings from child care licensing inspections conducted since January 2011.  The site may also be used to find licensed child care programs and providers, and to link to a wide variety of information about early care and education in Maryland.

The Family Child Care Provider Grant Program
The Family Child Care Provider Grant Program (FCCPGP) exists to help registered family child care providers offset some of the costs of opening their child care programs.  For information about the FCCPGP, click here.

NOTICE TO PARENTS AND PROVIDERS:
Maryland's Child Passenger Safety Law was changed effective October 1, 2012.  Under this change, every child under 8 years old must ride in an appropriate child restraint unless the child is 4 feet, 9 inches or taller.  Every child from 8 to 16 years old who is not secured in a child restraint must be secured in a vehicle seat belt.  If you would like to learn more about this law, or would like information on selecting or using child restraints, please call Maryland Kids in Safety Seats (Maryland KISS) at 410-767-6016 or log on to www.mdkiss.org.
