If a child is four before September 1, the child is eligible for pre-kindergarten. If a child is five before September 1, the child is eligible for kindergarten. Pre-kindergarten applicants must meet income eligibility guidelines. For more information about those guidelines, please call 301-766-8722.

Please note changes in school schedules in relation to inclement weather situations. When a two-hour delay is called, there will be no a.m. or p.m. pre-kindergarten. If school is dismissed two hours early, the a.m. pre-kindergarten students will stay until dismissal and ride the bus home with the other students. There will be no p.m. pre-kindergarten in the case of an early dismissal.
