Elementary School Child Care

Come join our exciting and energizing before-care and after-care programs! Your child will have the opportunity to participate in group activities that include crafts, games, recreational sports, cooking, and special events in the comfort of their own school. Before-care programs begin at 7am and run until school begins. After-care programs begin when school is-dismissed and run until 6pm.

There are also optional, full-day programs for specific days when schools are closed. 

All programs are licensed through the Maryland State Department of Education Office of Child Care. Site staff are trained and take continuing education classes each year.

Child care participants must be attending school at the same location as the desired program. To reserve a space, a $50 non-refundable registration fee and one month's tuition are required. To speak to a Child Care Registration Representative, please call 410-313-7275 or email at registration@howardcountymd.gov.
