Historical Note

In 1956, the Maryland Committee for Group Day Care of Children changed its name and its structure to the Maryland Committee for the Day Care of Children (MCDCC) and combined its former board and professional advisory committee with members of the public at large, broadening its base and publically interpreting the need for quality day care services. In 1978, MCDCC changed its name again, to the Maryland Committee for Children, and established its headquarters at 608 Water Street, in Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
