The 2013 CYC Summer Programs will run 6 weeks, from June 24th - August 2nd.
The Center for Young Children, located on the College Park Campus, is a state of the art facility that provides an environment which educates and cares for children in a developmentally appropriate manner. The CYC offers preschool and school age summer programs for both the University community and local community.

The Center for Young Children offers a summer program for children ages 3 through 1st grade (those that have completed first grade). Enrolling 3-year-olds must have turned 3 on or before June 24th and must also be fully potty trained.
The hours are from 7:45 AM to 5:30 PM daily. The program is based on the CYC's already exciting, hands-on curriculum, and is further expanded to include outdoor activities, music/movement, swimming trips to the Campus Recreation Center, and other project based, stimulating local field trips. The University of Maryland Shuttle and Charter Buses are used for transportation to and from field trips. Morning and afternoon snacks are provided as well as milk for lunch. We regret hot lunch is not available in the summer. Parents are responsible for packing their child's lunch. Each classroom also has a rest period.
