P. Hoyer Early Care and Education Enhancement Learning Hubs, or "Judy
Centers," are state grant and locally funded early childhood and family
learning hubs. Collaboration and partnerships with the community lie
at the heart of Maryland’s Judy Center Early Learning Hubs. Judy Centers are
not childcare centers but a comprehensive hub where families
can participate in family learning experiences and receive services and
support. In Title I and high-needs elementary schools in every Maryland
jurisdiction, Judy Centers empower a child’s first teachers – their families –
by supporting child development and early learning skills for our youngest learners
from birth through kindergarten.
Judy Centers were established to honor the memory of Judith P. Hoyer, an early
childhood educator, advocate, and the late wife of Congressman Steny Hoyer.
There are two Judy Center Partnership Programs in Montgomery County Public Schools:
The MCPS Gaithersburg Judy Center, located at Summit Hall Elementary School, serves the families from the Summit Hall and Washington Grove elementary schools attendance areas.
The MCPS Silver Spring Judy Center, located at Rolling Terrace Elementary School, serves the children and families of the Rolling Terrace Elementary School attendance area.
The MCPS Judy Center Grant Partnership Programs serve young children and their families. They are designed to help ensure that all children are ready for school success.
As part of the grant, the Judy Centers collaborate with multiple community-based agencies and organizations that offer services to support children, ages birth to five years, and their families. The Judy Centers connect children and their families with these services to support early learning and school success. Additionally, the Judy Centers offer parents a link to full-day, full-year, high quality early care and education services.
The MCPS Judy Center Grant Partnership Programs are designed so that families are able to visit one location to receive educational support, family support, and health-related services.
Among the community partners represented in Montgomery County's Judy Centers are Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery County's Department of Health and Human Services Early Childhood Services and Child Care Resource and Referral Center, Montgomery County Public Libraries, Montgomery County Infants and Toddlers Program, Linkages to Learning, Families Foremost, and Family Services Agency, Inc.
Each Judy Center can provide specific information about its partners and the services that are available for children and families.
