EPCC: Essential Personnel Child Care Center in Fell’s Point

TNCS Is an Approved EPCC Provider

In mid March, TNCS quickly moved to get approval from the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) to be an official Essential Personnel Child Care (EPCC) site. We have now been additionally authorized to offer child care for children of parents working in businesses newly reopened by the Governor’s Executive Order Number 20-05-13-01, and we continue to offer care for essential workers as defined by Executive Order Number 20-03-25-01

The EPCC continues to accept students on a first-come, first-served basis. Request Care >
