Rock Spring is founded on serving the needs of the local community.  Our teachers and administrators reflect this spirit.  While the vast majority of our efforts are focused on creating a great place for kids each day and serving the families who are part of our school community, we are also engaged in other aspects of the child care community and the community at large:

Child Care Association Involvement

All of the members of Rock Spring’s Admin Team are members of the Organization of Child Care Directors of Montgomery County (OCCD) and the Maryland State Child Care Association. Our Executive Director, Carrie Meyer, was elected to the OCCD Board of Directors in 2014 and has served as Co-Chair since 2016.  OCCD brings together the directors and key people of many of our County’s child care programs so that they can learn and support each other in creating great child care environments for the families of our County.  For more information, go to

Shaun co-founded the Montgomery County Chapter of the Maryland State Child Care Association in 2016 and was elected by child care providers across the State to serve as the 1st Vice President of the State Association from 2016-2018. For more information, go to

Commission on Child Care

Shaun Rose, our School President, was appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council to serve as a commissioner on the Montgomery County Commission on Child Care from 2010 to 2016.  Shaun served as the Commission Chair from 2013-2014.  Information about the Commission and its current activities can be found on the Commission’s homepage.
