PROGRAM INFO: Early Learning Programs
In the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Montessori program, children receive an education addressing all areas of development: intellectual, emotional, social and physical. Critical thinking and cooperative learning are a part of every lesson. Each child receives individualized instruction in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
Montessori schools have multi-age groupings. Each classroom is directed by a teacher who holds both Montessori and public school certifications. Children stay with the same teacher for three years.
Montessori offer students unique opportunities to have:
Through the PGCPS lottery process, parents of students who are ages 3 or 4 have an opportunity to secure an available seat in one of the Montessori schools throughout the county. Admission to the program/ school is governed by a random placement lottery. Applications are available to students ages 3 or 4 who are residents of Prince George’s County. Montessori schools have specific boundaries, and all school assignments through the lottery are based upon a student’s home address (not the before and after school care provider). For additional information and to apply, visit our website or call 301-952-6300.
