Creating reliable solutions for child care programs

Full-Service Child Care Operations
and Systems Solutions

Our communities rely on affordable, accessible and quality child care programs. Successfully run child care programs promote emotional and intellectual development in children and enable parents to perform productively in the workplace. Since 1992, MAXIMUS has helped parents, providers and states through the development, implementation and operation of full-service child care programs and child care information systems.

As an organization solely focused on health and human services, MAXIMUS leverages expertise across business lines — our workforce services, child welfare and child support enforcement practices, for example, complement the work of our child care programs. Our professionals bring real-world operations and systems experience to deliver the best solutions and methods for efficient and effective delivery of program services.
