Presby Child Care Center helps children start each morning with confidence and ensure they arrive at school safely and on time. From late August through mid-June (the school year) the center will be open for before and after school care of students enrolled in kindergarten through second grades. Presby Child Care Center will also provide care for these students when BCPS is closed, open late, or has an early dismissal (for an extra tuition charge).

Before and after school classes do not follow a specific curriculum. They engage in the following activities that form their curriculum:

  • Developmentally appropriate lessons/activities
  • Children’s choice activities (e.g., art, games, reading, sports, etc.)
  • Outdoor play on the playground/field
  • Healthy snacks
  • Homework time
  • Crafts/Games
