A blog reader forwarded this email to me at my request:

CA Announces “Kidzescape” Childcare at Supreme Sports Club and Full Day School Age Childcare at certain public schools.  

A Message from  

Virginia (Ginny) Thomas,
Columbia Council Representative
for Oakland Mills 
Dear Neighbor,
I wanted to share with you the following update on our school age childcare programs. 
This is for CA members and is a pilot program at the Supreme Sports Club.  If successful it may open at other clubs.
Check out our new KidzEscape program starting on Monday, August 17.
The program will be limited to 2 hours from 9-11am on Mondays and Wednesdays. Pre-registration is required. As always, the safety of our members and employees is of the highest importance, so we are limiting the number of participants to 27 children who will be placed into three groups of 9 plus one Manager.  
For more information about the safety/health measures we have put in place, program details, and to register, interested members can go to or email Vanessa Braswell at    
CA will offer full day childcare (7 am- 6pm), beginning on September 8, at the following schools: Clarksville, Centennial, Clemens Crossing, Cradlerock, Hammond, Northfield, Phelps Luck, Swansfield, Waterloo, and Worthington. Registration will be open for current school age participants by August 21. The Teen Center in Oakland Mills will be added, as needed.  

Income qualified discounts are offered. Registration will be open to the general public on a space available basis beginning Monday, August 31.

Space is limited at all sites and the program may be canceled
or sites combined if there are not enough participants.   
Please contact or Marilyn Watring at 410-715-3164 for information.   
CA’s website will be updated, and an email sent to current participants when the on-line registration is live.  
Let me know if you have any comments or questions. Please respond to me at  Do not click reply at the top of this email.
Take care,
Ginny Thomas
CA rep for Oakland Mills and Vice Chair  
of the CA Board of Directors


After the announcement of “County Executive Ball Launches RecZone Program to Meet Childcare Needs” many people commented that it was odd that no schools in Columbia were noted as being used by Rec and Parks for that program….I think we now know why…Columbia Association will use those schools for their program.

For those keeping track…the County program may use up to 16 elementary schools and CA may use up to 10 elementary schools in Howard County for these programs. I guess this is all depending on approval by Howard County Public School System (still waiting on additional details from my questions).

As of this post the Columbia Association website has not been updated with this information:

I will try and do my best to provide updates as I get them on this topic.
