The 2023 Howard County Child Care Fair will provide parents, guardians, grandparents and child care personnel with “one stop shopping” for child care, preschool, school-age and summer programs, as well as the opportunity for personal contact with teachers and program directors.

Representatives from community service organizations that offer programs and services to Howard County’s young children will also be onsite to provide information to interested parents. Masks must be worn at all times in the building.

Office of Children and Families' staff will hold free informational sessions on “How to Choose an Early Childhood Program” onsite at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. The link to the newly updated digital edition of the Parent’s Guide to Howard County will also be available.

Though admission is free, attendees are asked to bring nonperishable food items or an unopened package of diapers to donate to the Howard County Food Bank.
