BALTIMORE — With Governor Larry Hogan ordering all child day cares to shutdown amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some area schools are opening their doors to take care of those children of first responders and essential personnel working on the front lines to contain the virus.

On Monday, the Maryland School for the Blind will open as a daycare center for children of Maryland’s first responders and essential personnel.

The Pre-School and Early Learning Center, on the campus at 3501Taylor Avenue in northeast Baltimore, will be used for the daycare center which will be open Monday through Friday from 6:00 am to 6:30 pm.

Children ages 4-12, can attend at no cost.
