In response to the needs expressed by members of its workforce, Johns Hopkins University is moving forward with plans to open a child care center on the Homewood campus in fall 2015. A temporary structure will be built on the Stony Run parking lot along the southwestern edge of campus. The modular, one-level building will be used until the university can design and construct a permanent facility at the northeast corner of campus.
The center will care for children ranging in age from 10 weeks through 5 years. After an extensive review process that took into account staff-to-child ratios and staff credentials, the university has selected Downtown Baltimore Child Care Inc. to run the center. Administrators say this project began in earnest in 2010, with an exploratory process that included input from many members of the JHU community. Click here for more information.
