Going back to work can be hard!

Selecting child care is one of the most important decisions your family will make for your young child. Because your child’s first five years last forever, take the time to make the best choice.

Our Family Resource Specialists are here to help. They can help you better understand and navigate the best options for your family. The LOCATE: Child Care is a free and confidential referral service that will help you find the best child care for your family. The program is affiliated with all of Maryland’s regulated child care providers.

Deciding to go back to work can be overwhelming. Start planning early on new routines, prioritize self-care and be patient with yourself while adjusting.. Life will get hectic first starting out. But being the best prepare helps ease the stress.
