*Updated June 29 2022*

Thanks to our parent communities for your patience with the licensing process. It is taking longer than anticipated, but do know that we are working diligently to get each site to the goal line.  With this in mind, we have added a color for each step of the process.  A color is placed in the status column for each school and will be updated as each school moves through the process.

Note: ALL PROGRAMS WILL OPERATE ON SCHOOL SITES

FRIENDLY REMINDER
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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will BASELP reopen?

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.

What is the timeline for having the vendors in place?

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. Update: Licensing amidst the Pandemic has presented challenges to licensing sites. Please continue to review the website for the progress of each school location. 

Will or can the school system provide care until the vendors are in place?

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.

When can I register for BASELP care? How can I register for BASELP for next year?

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

Is it possible that before/after care will not be available on school sites when school reopens in September?

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.

What are your recommendations?

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.
