The Baltimore County Public Schools Prekindergarten Program provides learning experiences that address the cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and physical needs of young children. All sessions operate for half the school day – 2 1/2 hours each weekday – and follow the same schedule for the school year as other grades.

Children who will be 4 years old by September 1 are eligible to be screened for PreK. PreK screening and registration occurs at all elementary schools in Baltimore County, beginning in March. Interested parents should contact their neighborhood school regarding program availability and specific dates and procedures for prekindergarten screening. Parents may also call the Office of Early Childhood Programs at 443-809-4313 for more information.
