child care pictureInformation for Child Care Providers

Child Care providers can be found supervising and caring for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and/or school age children in homes, nursery schools, day care centers, summer camps, and at many other facilities. Their work is intense, rewarding, and very important to the children and families of Maine.

If you are currently a child care provider, thank you for your valuable work. If you are considering child care as a profession, there are a number of resources and support systems available to you.

Both current and potential child care providers are encouraged to explore this section of the website. The links on the left will provide information about programs and support services that are available.
