The First Five Years: EXCELS

Maryland Family Network

Do you want to know how your child care provider stacks up against others? The Maryland State Department of Education's Maryland EXCELS program can tell you just that. When a child care provider or public pre-K classroom enrolls in the EXCELS program, quality assurance specialists from MSDE verify that all the standards have been met.  That means, in general, the more standards that are met, the better the care and education for our children.
