"My favorite thing about you is that you are nice. I like that you let me get the marbles when I want."
Piney Ridge 1st Grader - School Writing assignment

"ABC Care is a wonderful program at Parr's Ridge. Ms. Meghan does a great job organizing and running the program. The children are happy and always engaged in meaningful activities. When parents and friends ask me about ABC Care, I highly reccommend the program to them."
Teacher at Parr's Ridge Elementary

"I like how ABC Care comes to the office and checks in if a student is missing and how they always stop in at the office each afternoon to let us know they (ABC Care) are here."
William Winchester Elementary School Office Staff

"My son, Max, is so absolutely enjoying everything about ABC that I now routinely stay at school to lesson plan, go home to start dinner, and then return to get him after they've gone outside on the playground. This allows me to drastically reduce the load I bring home to do in the evenings and gives him time to play. He loves it there - and Ms. Kate is a GEM!! You are very fortunate to have such a wonderful staff. My son comes home happy, tired, sweaty, all "played out." Plus, he has homework done, he's had a snack and he has had wonderful play time with all his new friends he's made there. As you know, there truly is not a lot of opportunity for free social interaction throughout the school day (not to mention physical activity!) and ABC provides him with both in a loving, safe environment."

"I recently visited several day care sites in the Mt. Airy area and believe that ABC provides a high quality of care for children. They have a proven track record in Carroll County and are nationally accredited by the National After School Association; none of the other centers currently have this accreditation. My children are provided enriching activities, both physical and mental, in a safe and nurturing environment."
Parr’s Ridge parent

"I can't say enough great things about this camp and the staff. Ms. Maddie and Ms. Kara are with Jake at the afterschool program at St. John's and they are just as wonderful there as they are at camp. They interact with the children, make sure they get a great combination of education, outside play, indoor play and even free play. I can not tell you how comfortable I feel dropping him off each day because I know that he is well cared for. It is like night and day from the other camp. The staff is always keeping us well informed of the next day's activities and greeting us when we drop off and pick up. The staff really make a camp and this staff is A++! We will be back next year!"
Carrie Dulski, Westminster Adventure Camp Parent

"ABC Summer Camps have been a wonderful experience for my son who attends with his nurse. From the beginning of the process and throughout the summer they have welcomed Daniel, who has multiple special needs and medical conditions. He really enjoys attending. The staff and the other campers have been wonderful including him in all activities, interacting with him and learning how to communicate with him using his device. I can not say enough about everyone at ABC. Thank you for a wonderful summer."
Sharon Ihde, Eldersburg Adventure Camp Parent

"Thank you so much for the outstanding care your staff has provided my daughter. Every member of your staff has been kind, loving and nurturing. It has been a pleasure."
