Child Care (in the local elementary schools)

The Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department has provided child care for elementary age children for more than 30 years. We offer a Before School Program and After School Program. The staff provide high quality care and supervision for students in pre-kindergarten through the fifth grade. Our Child Care Program strives to be a place where children have positive experiences and parents feel secure and comfortable.

The program follows the calendar set forth by Anne Arundel County Public Schools. On major holidays the program is closed. However, we do offer all day care on teacher workdays.

If you have any additional questions, please Email Caryn Walaski.

Before School Program


This program consists of crafts, coloring, and board games that stimulate the imagination and keep the students entertained. Quiet and low key activities are planned so that children do not become too involved prior to the start of school. Students are released to their classrooms when the first bell rings.

After School Program


This program offers structured activities that are planned for the students. Students choose from a variety of activities including sports, games and crafts. They may also read and complete their homework. No child is required to take part in planned activities, but active participation is encouraged.
