Maryland EXCELS Toolkit  

Licensing: Valid License

Maryland has rigorous licensing regulations to ensure that all child care programs provide proper care for infants and children. Maryland EXCELS builds on these regulations and recognizes participating programs that go above and beyond licensing requirements in their commitment to quality and improvement. Your program is eligible to participate in Maryland EXCELS as soon as you are issued a license or registration number.
