We have been informed by Parkville Rec Council that Baltimore County will not allow us to open for the Winter/Spring session.    A non-payment place holding list for September 2021 will open on Monday, February 22, 2021 - go to stonealley.com  - for more details.

We have made Changes - Please see below.

Due to the Corona Virus, we are hoping for a September 2021 opening.  We are awaiting permission from the State, County and Rec Council for that to happen. We are excited that Tots has been given permission to do a planning phase.  However, timelines, class sizing, program days can change from what we are planning as of now.  

We are currently working with Stone Alley (Stonealley.com) to accept a temporary NO payment class list.  We have permission to open up a Hold -A-Place Registration at Stonealley.com on Monday, February 22, 2021. Again NO Payment will be due at this time.  However, when we are given permission by Parkville Rec Council/Ba. Co. Rec & Parks to open, those on the list will be asked to go back to Stone Alley to do an actual Registration. All Application & Supply fees and Tuition payments will be handled by Stone Alley.

We are currently working on our budget to set our tuition  rates.  As soon as we know our registration numbers, we can give an accurate tuition. Hopefully,  our 3s should not be more than $1000/ year and our 4s  $1300/ year.

We will be following all the guidelines put forth by the State Office of Childcare and Baltimore County Rec & Parks. 

We are so very excited to be planning another wonderful, safe and healthy Tots year with your 3 and 4 year olds!!  

We will keep you informed as the School year approaches and they have dictated what the procedures for us opening will be.

  • Only 3s class will now run Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9AM to 11:30AM
  •  4s class will be 12:30PM to 3:00PM, Monday to Friday

Hopefully, we can run the program at the tuition prices noted below.  We should have a more concrete idea of tuition once we know our actual numbers registering.  We will be working on an acceptable budget for 2021-22 to hold these prices.
