The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center, also operated by Downtown Baltimore Child Care, is a premier early learning facility whose teachers and staff believe all children deserve the best education from the earliest age. The product of years of planning by leading child advocates, the state-of-the-art Weinberg ECC, located near the East Baltimore campus, provides developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for children using the latest evidence-based approaches to ensure children start school ready to learn. The center’s 12-month, full-day operation serves a diverse mixed-income community of children and families who live and/or work in the Eager Park neighborhood and beyond. Priority admission is available to Johns Hopkins parents.

JHU Child Care Scholarships

The university has taken steps to make sure that cost is not a prohibitive factor for JHU families that are using one of the three centers that are Johns Hopkins partners—the Homewood Early Learning Center, Bright Horizons at the School of Medicine, and the Weinberg Early Childhood Center. In addition to child care vouchers, we now have a pool of scholarship funds that will make sure children from any economic background can join these learning communities.

Other Centers

Although the child care scholarship does not apply to the other centers below, you may use the child care voucher to help with tuition. These centers also offer preferred wait list status for JHU employees:

Downtown Baltimore Child Care Center

Downtown Baltimore Child Care provides early education and child care to a diverse community. Children of university employees receive preferential admission.

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Child Care Center

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Child Care Center has 32 spaces for children 2 to 5 years of age. Priority is given to employees of Bayview Medical Center.

Y Preschool at Weinberg

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Y Preschool Center offers priority placement for children ages 2 to 5 of full-time Johns Hopkins University faculty and staff. The Weinberg Y is on East 33rd Street in Waverly, conveniently located near both the Homewood and East Baltimore campuses. Preregister your child to join the wait list.
