    Montgomery Public Schools’ First Class Pre-K Program is committed to providing a safe and caring, developmentally appropriate environment for preschool children.  Our goal is to provide high-quality educational experiences that promote the maximum development of each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive abilities.


    With intentionality, we create learning environments that engage children in high quality, developmentally appropriate activities to increase their school readiness in a safe and nurturing environment.


    We foster partnerships with families and the community that enhance the abilities and skills of the whole child in becoming a lifelong learner.


    High-quality Pre-K experiences provide children with the foundation for ongoing learning, and support children and families to become responsible citizens as they develop lifelong skills.


    Goals of high-quality Pre-K experiences include: enhancing children’s skills in personal and social development, language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social-emotional development, technology skills, creative arts, and physical development.  We strive to develop a professional learning community that includes parents, teachers, principals, MPS departments, and community organizations.  Through strong partnerships with Federal Programs, the Offices of School Readiness, Head Start, and the Family Guidance Center, Montgomery Public Schools offers a dynamic, high-quality Pre-K experience that increases children's school readiness.
