Update Your LOCATE Information

Keep your provider information up-to-date

LOCATE: Child Care is one (but not the only) tool that providers can use to market their programs. Program records that are complete and accurate help counselors serve the needs of parents best and help us to refer your program to parents looking for services you provide.

What to do:

  • Complete the annual questionnaire that describes your program and services. To complete your questionnaire online, click here.
  • Let us know when there are changes in your program or phone number.
  • Call us monthly at 866-752-1614 with your vacancy information.

Report Vacancies and Update Fee Information

We encourage you to call LOCATE at 866-752-1614 every 30 days to report your vacancies.

If you change your fees for any age group, please let us know by calling a LOCATE counselor at 866-752-1614. Fee information provided by licensed and registered providers to the Resource Centers of the Maryland Child Care Resource Network (MCCRN) is combined into a cost of care report for Maryland, which is used to determine the market rate for child care. The market rate is used to determine the child care subsidy (POC) payment schedule. Accurate and up-to-date fee information also helps the Maryland Child Care Resource Network advocate for fair compensation for child care providers.
