Child Care Center Orientation

Watch this interactive orientation to learn how to apply for a child care license in Maryland. You must view every slide in order to complete the orientation. Once you complete the orientation, you will submit a form that will be sent to the regional Office of Child Care that verifies you completed the orientation. You will also receive an email copy of this form.

The orientation has videos, interactive activities and audio narration. You should expect to spend approximately one hour going through the orientation. You can pause the orientation and return at a later time. Please note, we recommend that anyone using assistive technology read the Child Care Center Orientation PDF version. (To successfully complete this PDF version of the orientation, you must review all pages and click the Confirm Orientation Complete button at the bottom of the PDF.)
