The long-term economic success of our County depends on a healthy, skilled, and reliable workforce. Our workforce depends on child care. Workers who are also parents of young children need nurturing places for their children to learn, play, and grow while their parents or caregivers work. High-quality child care promotes positive development – building healthy brains for lifelong learning and wellbeing. Our child care system is too important to leave to chance.


Child Care Market Study

We conducted a comprehensive study of the child care market in Frederick County to understand the conditions affecting the child care market (supply and demand), the ideas and experiences underlying families’ child care decisions, and the opportunities for improving the availability and affordability of quality child care.
