Presidentís Message

The agency’s tagline, “Hope for the future, power in the present,” is a perfect mentality for me to have as I begin my career at Board of Child Care.  I am very excited about the tremendous future possibilities that lie ahead, and have been busy immersing myself in the present by getting to know our kids, staff, board, and community partners.

Right now, our youth are engrossed in typical summertime activities such as sliding down slip and slides, splashing around in the pool, playing outdoor games, and enjoying special outings made possible by our thoughtful and generous BCC Auxiliary. As August draws to a close, however, they will return to school, having picked classes that allow their talents and interests to shine. 

Hearing the hopes and dreams of our youth is one of my favorite parts of this work, and their education is such a tremendously important tool in making those goals achievable.  BCC is arming them in a number of ways, and you can read below about a fantastic new partnership between the Community College of Baltimore County and Strawbridge School. 

As you settle back into the rhythm of school schedules, sports games, and fall activities, I hope you will consider supporting both our present and future programing by contributing to our Back-To-School appeal.  Education is vitally important in all of BCC’s programming, from the little ones served at our Early Childhood Education facility in DC to our high school students across Maryland and West Virginia.

Thank you to everyone for the heartfelt welcome to BCC’s family.  The Board of Child Care is truly a very special place doing amazing things for kids daily.
