Other Prekindergarten Options

If your family does not meet the eligibility criteria to qualify for the HCPSS Pre-K program, there are other community-based options available.

HCPSS Collaboration

HCPSS partnered with Howard Community College Children’s Learning Center to implement a program that expands access to low-cost, high quality preschool education to eligible families. The purpose is to provide a preschool education that meets Maryland standards.

Howard Community College Children’s Learning Center received an MSDE grant that allows this center to offer a tuition discount for families that meet certain income eligibility criteria as space allows. Please contact HCC for more information.
