St. Mary's County
Beginnings opened its doors in 1982 with the goal of providing
high quality childcare to St. Mary's County. Licensed by the State
of Maryland, our mission is to assure that your child receives the
best care available. Our school is a private preschool-day care center
serving children from infancy through 5th grade.
Young children learn best through manipulation of materials and
hands-on experiences. These activities are carefully planned and
facilitated by knowledgeable teachers. This learning looks very
much like play - but play with purpose and intent. Teachers organize
and display materials so that children use them to figure things
out, practice skills, and learn new concepts. Children are allowed
enough time to explore those materials again and again. Repetition
and success develops the confidence to take risks and try more complex
and demanding activities. Click

About Our Center
The St. Charles Children's Learning Center opened January 30, 2006
to 20 children ages 2, 3, and 4 years old. The center received its
Maryland State License (#08-132502) and the required background
checks on the childcare staff for those classrooms. As we received
the results of the required background checks on other childcare
staff from the state’s Criminal Justice Information System
and the FBI, additional classrooms were opened. At this time, all
of our classrooms are open and have children enrolled.
