About the Provider

Description: Crown Care is excited to announce the addition of our new Tot child care program.
Crown Care is licensed through the State of Maryland (Office of Child Care). This program provides before and after school day care for children ages 5-12 years and in the summer of 2013 will be opening our NEW Tot and Preschool day care for children ages 2-4 years. Crown Care is open Monday through Friday throughout the school year from 6:30am until 6:00pm. During the summer months Camp Crown is available instead of Crown Care for school age children. Crown Care's Tot program is open year round.

Crown Care offers one of Wicomico County's finest before and after school programs and one of Delmarva's best child development centers. Our director, Allison Walker, is a certified teacher with over 5 years of experience working with school age children. Your children will spend time with friends and enjoy activities that are relevant to school-age interests. We focus on homework, socialization skills, conflict resolution, practical life lessons, physical movement & play, as well as the arts.

At Crown Care, your child is viewed as an individual. We believe that all children learn and experience situations in a distinct manner. We believe all children desire to be nurtured, cared for, and accepted. Your child will feel appreciated and valued at Crown Care. We are more than a day care or child care. Making a difference, one child at a time.

We provide a stimulating, clean classroom environments where the children have access to 6 indoor fields and 11 acres of Bermuda grass outdoor fields for a host of creative activities. Please come by and visit us in our Fruitland facility and see our classroom and sports complex.

Concerned Mother Jul 09, 2021
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My child went here for about 6 months. At the beginning I was told that they were equipped for my childe (he was almost 2 years old - 23 months) and that he would be well taken care of etc etc. This was not the case. He was surrounded by older children. There were not any other children in the class his age. He was hit on, pushed, punched and yelled at by the other bigger children to where he began mimicking this behavior. This began to change and alter his entire attitude. It was so sad to watch. Not once did they say that it was not a good fit for him to be there. I asked how it was going etc and they assured me everything was fine. The director Rich made sure to paint a very pretty picture. I just thought maybe I was being over paranoid and overprotective but no. I really started paying attention around Christmas time when they had their virtual pageant and my child was no where to be seen in the visual presentation. He kept getting pushed out of the way by a bigger child and finally a teacher picked up my little one and help him. I assume to save face because they were on a live stream. That was the beginning of the end for us. We began the unenrollment process. Once this began Rich then told us that a different place would be a better fit for our child as they are not very equipped for children his age?!?!??! WHAT ?!?!? Totally different story than what you told me to get me in the door!!! The teachers try , I do believe for the most part but my gut just was never comfortable. Something is just "off" and as a parent you know what I mean.
