Attention Child Care Providers:
Effective November 20, 2023, all child care providers with families enrolled in the Child Care Scholarship Program are required to have an account in the Child Care Provider Portal.
This Portal supports the provider by:
- Simplifying payments and invoice history within the Portal to initiate timely payment.
- Enabling electronic processing of scholarships.
- Improving communication and customer service with automatic notifications of next steps.
The launch of the Child Care Provider Portal builds on the strengths of the Family Portal, which has led to more than 40,000 submitted family applications.
Effective November 20, 2023, the Maryland State Department of Education will no longer accept paper invoices, attendance, or scholarship enrollment requests. All of these processes must be completed electronically using the Child Care Provider Portal.
