Our Story

In September 2014, Johns Hopkins University announced plans to open a child care center on the Homewood campus. This much anticipated announcement followed years of advocacy for additional child care resources and momentum by university leadership to answer this need. The center opened in August 2015.

DBCC as Operator of the Center

Following a rigorous and competitive selection process, the university selected Downtown Baltimore Child Care Inc. (DBCC) to operate and manage the center. DBCC was chosen after an extensive review process that took into account high staff-to-child ratios and strong staff credentials—factors that early childhood researchers emphasize are part of high-quality programs.
