Thank you so much for your patience as we worked out a plan to provide childcare and virtual learning support for your children. This has been a complicated and difficult process. We believe we have worked out the program and protocols to care for your children in a safe and secure manner and additionally provide support for their virtual learning. We are very happy to be returning to the cafeteria space in your child’s home school. Middle school students and students of other schools not serviced by ABC Care presently may register for our Deer Park location. We are opening our programs for registration for full day learning and childcare. Please note that our license capacity has been limited by the Maryland State Department of Education, Office of Child Care, in most cases by more than half. We are offering registration to our previously enrolled families first. All slots are on a first come basis. Part Time, Flex and Drop-in Care will be provided only if space is available.
Please note that we have adjusted our opening time at ALL centers due to a lack of staff availability. ALL centers will be open from 7am – 6:30pm. We will continually re-evaluate and make changes as able.
As part of the new design, children will be divided into 2 cohorts and remain in those cohorts for the day. CDC guidelines for the wearing of masks will be met and extensive cleaning will be adhered to. There are new sign-in and dismissal procedures. Please make sure you read all the new guidelines and protocols. These can be found in the Parent Manual and the COVID-19 Guidance for Child Care facilities on our website.
We are excited to return to our child care sites and although the day may look different than it did back in March, you will still find the high quality you have come to know and expect from ABC Care. We look forward to welcoming your family back for the school year 2020-2021.
