State-Funded Child Care for Essential Workers

md childcare

The State of Maryland continues offering free child care to parents who are deemed essential personnel.

While child care centers were ordered closed by state order, child care programs are allowed to remain open if they receive new licensing approval, commit to serving only the children of essential personnel, and thoroughly clean their facilities.

In Montgomery County, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and YMCA are among the approved child care operations.

The children of essential personnel attending the state-funded child care programs will be kept at an appropriate distance from each other with ratios of one teacher to nine children. Younger children will have smaller class sizes.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to keep children home when possible.

Essential personnel include:

  • Health care and pharmacy providers
  • Public health employees
  • Law enforcement, first responders and correctional services employees
  • Government employees required to work during the state of emergency
  • Employees and representatives of insurance carriers
  • Active-duty National Guard personnel
  • Staff and providers of child care or education services , including custodial staff and food service providers
  • Food distributors and suppliers
  • Transportation and delivery workers
  • Gas station operators and auto mechanics
  • Critical infrastructure employees, including emergency support personnel for gas and electric utility operations, public works, water treatment, and waste management
  • Personnel of other institutions ordered to remain open during the state of emergency

Roy, cannot imagine having children, and deemed as essential, and not have anywhere for your kiddos to stay.

Yes, it is a necessity. Imagine not having a place to care for your children when you must work.

Hello Roy - children are obviously always important.  Hopefully, these times will prompt a review of proper priorities.

Child care is so expensive and it often seems to make having a job not worthwhile.

This is a great idea - people work much more successfully if they are confident about their child care

Thank goodness for this, Roy. How can anyone put their all into what they're doing if they're concerned about the welfare of their children.
