The Office of Child Care
Shaun Rose, a center based provider, and Jacqueline Grant, a family child care provider, discuss their regulatory agency, the Maryland State Department of Education's Office of Child Care. The hosts discuss different regulatory structures that exist in other states and the strengths and challenges to how they operate. They talk about child care subsidies, their experience with child care licensing, their efforts to push back on continued expansion of regulations with unfunded mandates, and ideas for how it could be better.
