Admission Priority

Because spaces in the Homewood Early Learning Center (ELC) are in high demand, the following priority system is used for admission. To be considered for priority admission you must accurately provide information about your employment at Johns Hopkins on the application form.

Please note that the priority system is used in combination with the date of your completed application, so we encourage you to apply as soon as you know that you will need care. (Note: an application is complete when the nonrefundable $45 application fee is received.)

Admission priority is offered in the following order:

  • JHU faculty and staff working for the following divisions: Krieger School of Arts & Sciences, Libraries & Museums, Whiting School of Engineering, Homewood Student Affairs, University Administration, Carey Business School and Peabody Institute
  • JHU postdocs, fellows and graduate students of Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering
  • JHU faculty, staff and trainees of Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Medicine, School of Nursing
  • JHU postdocs, fellows, residents, house staff and graduate/medical students not previously prioritized
  • Other Johns Hopkins affiliated employees
  • Community members
