Employment Opportunities

We are one of the largest before and after school childcare programs in Maryland with 11 centers located in Carroll County and one in Baltimore County. Because of our split schedule, we are able to offer flexible hours in the morning or the late afternoon throughout the school year. Our positions can accommodate individuals looking for full time employment and those needing part time due to college or high school class schedules.
