What Makes Critchlow Adkins So Special?

Critchlow Adkins is a local non-profit whose mission is to provide quality, financially accessible childcare in a nurturing, diverse, safe, and enriching environment.

Critchlow’s caring teachers provide engaging lessons in year-round education-based preschool, pre-K through 5th grade before- and after-school care, and themed summer camps. Our innovative STEAM activities promote critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork, and encourage a lifelong love of learning.

Additionally, four Critchlow Sites are located within Talbot County elementary schools, making our programs convenient for families.

“When choosing child care and early education programs, cost and convenience are important considerations for you, the parent. However, the ultimate value a program can offer you and your child is the quality of the care and education it provides.”
