It is only in extreme weather conditions that we close the center. If Frederick County Public Schools has a delayed opening, the Center will open on time for child care only children. If public schools are closed, the Center will open 2 hours late at 8:30am with no preschool only program. If closure is necessary, a message will be place on the telephone system at the Center. During inclement weather please call our main number (301-898-5143) and check the message for the current status. The message will be monitored and updated as necessary and an email will sent out by 6:00 am.
