HCC's children's program receives new state rating

August 11, 2013

The Children’s Learning Center at Hagerstown Community College received the new Maryland EXCELS rating. This rating is a voluntary tiered quality rating and improvement system for child-care providers and is based on five progressive check levels.

HCC’s Children’s Learning Center supports the child-care needs of HCC students, faculty, staff and others when space permits, and provides a learning environment for college students interested in working with young children. Those ages 2 to 5 are accepted.

The center is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., 12 months a year. The center follows the college calendar and is closed for observed holidays and staff training days. It also follows the college’s inclement weather policies. Applications are being accepted for the fall. For more information, call 240-500-2322 or send an email to tjkitchen@hagerstowncc.edu

Maryland EXCELS creates a core framework that encompasses quality initiatives in accreditation, credentialing and professional development, developmentally appropriate activities, and administrative practices.

Maryland EXCELS recognizes the accomplishments of early childhood and school-age programs and providers, offers information to families on choosing child care and articulates to the public the level of quality in early and school-age care and education programs.
