CHESTERTOWN – Radcliffe Creek School has announced that it will be closing its preschool, Little Creek, in August 2021 and is accepting written proposals from reputable child care providers interested in leasing the existing childcare space.

“Little Creek has been an important part of the Radcliffe Creek School landscape. It has served as a warm and welcoming learning environment for children across the eastern shore,” said Rob Ditmars, Board President. “In determining Radcliffe Creek School’s strategic goals for the next 5-10 years and beyond, our Board has made the difficult decision to discontinue operating the Little Creek program so as to focus on opportunities to advance our kindergarten through 8th grade mission. We are excited by the possibilities of a promising new collaboration to serve our community’s youngest children.”

The space provides a unique opportunity for an early learning center searching for a new location. Centrally located to many areas of the Eastern Shore, the 201 Talbot Boulevard space boasts 5,370 square feet, with currently licensed classrooms and two child-sized restrooms.

Radcliffe Creek School’s Board of Trustees is actively seeking written proposals from organizations by 3 p.m. on March 13, 2021. Radcliffe Creek School, Inc. will honor all current Little Creek contracts through the contracted date of August 13, 2021. It is the Board’s hope that a new operator will commence services immediately thereafter.

Contact Meg Bamford, Head of School, at or 410-778-8150 with questions. The RFP can be found on the School’s website at Radcliffe Creek School is an independent day school with the mission of empowering children in a dynamic environment that celebrates unique learning.
