The Child Care Center Licensing Manual (Manual) is used as a reference for Office of Child Care (OCC) licensing staff, licensed child care center operators, and for those who apply to become child care center operators. 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 child care center operators to achieve and maintain compliance, and enables licensing staff to assess operator compliance in a consistent and equitable manner.
