The ABC Care program at Westminster Elementary is a two-time nationally accredited, MD EXCELS Level 2 program, offering enriching daily experiences, including science, cooking and art, computer, drama, and manipulatives and participating in a variety of team-building activities. The Westminster center staff spends a great deal of time teaching about the heritages of children attending the center, with special events and cooking sessions. Students also enjoy their supervised free play time in the school’s large gymnasium, outdoor playground and blacktop area.
