The Prince George’s County Public *Pre-K program* will be offered onsite in person from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday-Friday, for working parents beginning August 31st.Funding is available for income eligible families. Families not eligible for funding will have enrollment opportunities if there are unfilled spaces on September 8th. This year will be an innovative hybrid program of virtual and in-person teaching and learning. Children must be age four by September 1st for Pre-k.
Capacity in the program has been greatly reduced from 60 to 39 children maximum, so spaces are very limited at this time to maintain safety. Space may be available for school-age children K-3rd grade to support online learning while parents are working.

We warmly welcome you and your child to Greenbelt Children's Center!
At the Greenbelt Children's Center, we encourage parent
participation. We believe it is important for parents and teachers to
work together, as this benefits the child. We have an open door policy
and parents may visit any time.
You are your child’s first teacher! There are many
ways you can help your child be ready for school. One way is to help your
child with language & literacy. Learning to express needs & wants
by talking, understanding others
through listening and knowing about reading and writing are examples of language & literacy skills.
skills begins at birth.
Here are five important areas: building language skills,
learning about books and print, developing comprehension (understanding),
learning about letters and learning about sounds in words.
When you support your child in these areas, he/she will
be more likely to do well when starting school. Children who easily learn
to read and write have had many experiences with books and language before
school begins. As a parent, you can help build your child’s language
and literacy skills and abilities. We are happy to be your partner in
this and will offer parent learning opportunities so that you will become
more skilled at being your child’s first teacher.
