Baltimore—Maryland Family Network’s new app should be the first stop for any parent seeking safe and reliable care for their little one. The app features MFN’s LOCATE:  Child Care, a free and confidential service that provides details on all regulated child care in Maryland. LOCATE:  Child Care provides referrals to parents based on geography, age of the child, drop off and pick-up times or other needs specified by your family. Development of the app was generously donated by Baltimore based Atlantic Mobile Apps

Child care is one of the most important and expensive decisions that a family makes. Maryland Family Network strives to help parents make the most informed decision possible. Parents can also contact a LOCATE:  Child Care referral specialist by calling 877.261.0060 to discuss their needs directly.

The app also has other features to help families in Maryland with young children and the professionals who support them including a podcast, blog, technical supports for child care providers, and the latest public policy information pertaining to young children and families.
