The Large Family Child Care Homes (Manual) is used as a reference for Office of Child Care (OCC) licensing staff, registered providers, and for those who apply to become large family child care home providers. The Manual primarily provides assistance in interpreting and applying Code of Maryland Regulation (COMAR) requirements when child care facilities are inspected for compliance by licensing staff. By providing a comprehensive set of interpretive guidelines, the Manual enables large family child care home providers to achieve and maintain compliance, and enables licensing staff to assess provider compliance in a consistent and equitable manner.
Chapters .01-.16 of the Large Family Child Care Home Manual are listed below. For your convenience, the “Title Page and Master Table of Contents” contain a Title Page, an Introduction, and Table of Contents for all chapters. This is useful when assembling the chapters together in a notebook or other type of binder.
