Welcome!

COVID CHILDCARE UPDATE: While MCPS do not expect to let us use the schools on August 31st, they do have a goal of childcare programs being able to open in MCPS buildings by September 14th

CDC’s main priority would be to provide a safe space for your children to attend where they could get help with their virtual learning from trusted adults while you work. With this information from MCPS, we will move forward on the in-person plans with a 9/14 start date as well as virtual links into the center. 

We will send out additional information in days to come for on-line registration and payment on our website at waysidecdc.com.  With COVID regulations the number of children will be limited, so the registration will allow us to hold a spot for your child.    If you have any additional questions please email erin@waysidecdc.com or cindy@waysidecdc.com

The Farmland Child Development Center is a licensed, non-profit childcare center for school-age children that provides a stimulating and educational before and after school program. It is located on-site at Wayside Elementary school. The objective of our program is to offer each child a secure community environment in which he or she will develop a sound self-concept, new skills, an increasing sense of independence, a sense of responsibility, and satisfying relationships.

The program is designed to help children function more effectively as individuals and as members of the group. CDC promotes the welfare of the individual through group experiences set under the guidelines of the program and directed by experienced staff.
