Emergency Closing Information

Decisions regarding whether to close or delay the opening of the St. Charles Children’s Learning Center due to inclement weather or other conditions are made solely at the discretion Center’s management and the College of Southern Maryland.  Please note that decisions are made independently and therefore may not necessarily coincide with the decision of Charles County Public Schools and other local care providers.

When the college or the La Plata Campus is closed all programs at the Center will be closed. Additionally, when the college or La Plata Campus has a delayed opening, all programs will observe the delay and opening time.

There are no reimbursements for emergency closings or delayed openings.
