We are sensitive to the fact that parents/guardians are anxious to receive information about registration and enrollment. Please keep in mind that all programs will need to be licensed by the state before operations can begin. Vendors and principals will be collaborating to facilitate licensing and enrollment to begin as soon as possible.
The PGCPS – Before and After School Extended Learning Program will not reopen. The program was terminated February 2021. In order to serve our communities we issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to offer qualified vendors the opportunity to offer before and after care services at our previous sites.
Vendors should be identified by June 30, 2021. They will then prepare to obtain their license by meeting the criteria specified by the Maryland State Department’s Office of Childcare Licensing In order to prepare to open Fall 2021.
The school system does not have the capacity to offer services in lieu of a vendor. Our goal will be to work with the vendors to assist them in getting their license as soon as possible. MSDE is requiring all vendors to obtain their own license to operate.
The vendor assigned to each school will determine the registration process and the registration timeline. They will reach out to their communities as soon as the awards are made. Schools will be notified of the selected vendor
Opening when school opens is dependent upon licensing. No program can open without the approval of MSDE. In the event this happens, the community will be notified.
We are recommending that you sign up for the school system ALERTS, monitor the PGCPS main website and contact LOCATE: Child Care. LOCATE: Child Care offers free, one-on-one telephone counseling support to find child care in Prince George's County. Call 1-877-261-0060 to obtain assistance.
