Open Door Offers Full Day Care and Welcomes New Executive Director


For 38 years, elementary school families in Baltimore, Anne Arundel and Harford counties have come to know Open Door as the nurturing second home for students and their families with the need for before and after care. With programs housed in 22 schools in Baltimore County, 11 schools in Anne Arundel County and two schools in Harford County, Open Door cares for nearly 2,300 students in a normal school year, with approximately 1,200 in Baltimore County. But with schools closing in March in response to the pandemic, and with virtual school being the choice for most area schools this fall, Open Door is working to fill the continued need for school age childcare. The Towson Office opened full day care on August 17th for students who are entering kindergarten through fifth grade and will continue the full day program to support virtual learning once the school year begins on September 8th. Space is still available, although limited.
