ABC Care’s Mt. Airy Center is a MD EXCELS Level 1 and nationally accredited program for grades 3, 4 and 5, focusing on sportsmanship, compassion and tolerance. The children at Mt. Airy have a very strong ownership of the center; they run the Cafe and plan much of the programming and events on a daily basis. We also offer a quiet homework area. The center has access to the school’s gym and an outdoor playground area with walking path.
