School Year Programs

Welcome to the Global family!

Global Children's Center provides before and aftercare for 14 elementary schools in Montgomery County. 

Global bases its activities, zones, and clubs on student interests and needs. We pride ourselves on providing the perfect combination of recreational and educational activities/lessons in our Before and After school program. We believe that our students are engaging in a well-balanced, out-of-school experience during their time at Global. Students will begin and end each day excited about the broad range of hands-on activities we offer. Children will be able to work on their homework and be offered assistance, which will allow them to enjoy more quality time at home. Global also has a "craft of the month" every month, that is either S.T.E.A.M. or seasonally related.

Days of Operation

Global Children's Center is open throughout the entire academic year, Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. until school begins, and from school dismissal until 6:30 p.m. We follow the MCPS administration's schedule and are open when your school's administrative offices are open for winter and spring breaks.

 Learning Environment & Materials 

All programs at Global Children's Center are age-appropriate for the developmental level of each child. All programs include opportunities for outdoor play, homework time, quiet reading time, arts and crafts, games, music, dance, special clubs, and free play. For our children to flourish, they must be provided with the tools for success. We have developed our program based on Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, to enrich and support the belief that an individual cannot be confined to one style of learning or one "skill set." Children must have the freedom to choose from a wide variety of materials, in a safe environment that stimulates and engages them.

 

Thus, we transform each center into enriching "Learning Zones" that promote the eight intelligences that Gardner identified in his career. Each zone is labeled with a corresponding sign, providing easy visibility for both our children and parents. While each site is tailored to meet the needs of each school we serve, you can find our eight "zones" shown below at each site for every morning and afternoon session.
