A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

Center for Young Children - Located on the University of Maryland campus, the CYC offers full-day, part-time, kindergarten, and summer camp programs for children ages 3 through 5. Curriculum is based on both teacher knowledge and what is meaningful for each child and emerges from a collaboration between teacher direction and children’s interests. The CYC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and licensed by the division of Early Childhood Development within the Maryland State Department of Education.

Family Care Resource & Referral Service - Assists University of Maryland faculty, staff and students with their family care needs and concerns. The university has contracted with Family Care Resources, an experienced consulting company, to provide free consultations and seminars to ease the stress of finding child care and elder care resources.
