Welcome to the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Check Child Care Maryland Website

The Check Child Care Maryland website is a resource for parents and families to use to review licensing information about a provider, including the provider’s license status, verified complaints and inspection results. Please use the form below to search for providers or view all open providers.

DISCLAIMER: The information on this Compliance Record Search site is provided as a public service by the MSDE Office of Child Care. Although the information contained herein is believed to be accurate and reliable, it is presented without guarantees and does not constitute an endorsement, either expressed or implied, of any child care provider or program. The Office of Child Care disclaims liability for any errors in, or omissions from compliance record information. Verification of compliance findings may be obtained from Office of Child Care regional licensing offices, which can be accessed online here.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Child care providers have the right to appeal any finding of regulatory noncompliance made by the Office of Child Care. Providers also have the opportunity to correct any identified noncompliance. Regulatory compliance is only one factor for parents to consider when choosing or continuing with a child care provider. Parents are encouraged to talk with the provider about any finding of noncompliance. The presence or absence of regulatory noncompliance does not necessarily indicate the quality of child care provided.
