Children's Learning Center

The Children’s Learning Center (CLC) was founded to provide Howard Community College students with child care services. As years passed, fewer students utilized the CLC. The coronavirus pandemic has caused the college to critically examine its operations, while balancing health and safety with the long-term financial needs of the college. After careful consideration, the college has made the very difficult decision to permanently close the CLC.

We will miss our families. Thank you for entrusting the care of your children to the staff of the CLC. And thank you to the dedicated CLC staff members, who always provided the best care and education to the college’s youngest students. We are forever grateful.

Resources for Parents: Child Care LOCATE
The Maryland Family Network’s Child Care LOCATE provides free, personalized assistance Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. A referral specialist will help you to identify child care options based on your family’s specific needs. Howard County residents should call 410-313-CARE. For parents outside of Howard County, call 877-261-0060.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
