Our goal at the Children’s Center is to provide a secure, loving and educational environment for all children and to provide peace of mind to all parents who entrust their children to our caring and nurturing staff. We accept all children as unique individuals and guide them in developing their full potential-socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.
We work cooperatively with programs such as Frederick County Public Schools, Partnership for Emotionally Resilient Kids “PERKS”, Frederick County Infants and Toddlers, Child Find, the ARC, and more to ensure children of every ability are successful throughout their education.
Since 1987 the Children’s Center of Walkersville has served the needs of thousands of families in the Frederick County, Metro and Tri-State areas.

We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues.
