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 a high-quality educational experience which promotes the maximum development of each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive abilities.


To provide high-quality, developmentally appropriate activities that increase school readiness in a safe and nurturing environment.


To foster a partnership with families and the community that will 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 on-going learning, and support children and families to become responsible citizens as they develop lifelong skills.

Goals  Goals of high-quality Pre-K experiences include: enhancing skills in personal and social development, language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social-emotional development, technology skills, creative arts, and physical development; and developing a professional learning community that includes parents, teachers, principals, MPS departments, and community organizations.

Through strong partnerships with Federal Programs, the Office 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. High-quality Pre-K experiences enhance a child’s personal and social development, language and literacy skills, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social-emotional development, technology skills, creative arts and physical development.
