About the Provider

Description: As the largest provider of school-age programs in Frederick County, we help hundreds of children every day reach their fullest potential in a welcoming, supportive environment. By incorporating the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into all of our youth services programming, we give children the solid foundation they need to thrive—not only in school, but beyond.

Formerly called Kids Club, our Before and After School (B.A.S.E.) program operates from 6:30 a.m. until the regular school day begins, and after school from school dismissal until 6:30 p.m. We follow the Frederick County school calendar and offer care on days that school opens late or dismisses early. On most school closing days, we also provide child care at designated sites. Children are provided with a nutritious snack every afternoon.
