Before and After School Programs

Before-School Care is considered drop-in and will be billed at an hourly rate determined each year. For the 2017-2018 school year, the before-school program is billed at $10 per hour. The one-time contractual rate for the 2017-2018 school year will be $1,600 per child.

After-School Care is available on a contractual basis for children ages 2 through 15. CMS’s ASC program is licensed with the Maryland Department of Education through the Office of Childcare. Because of these staffing requirements, enrollment for this program must be completed before the beginning of the school year.
