Letter to Class of 2022 - 2023 Families


Dear Preschool Families,

We are excited about opening at full capacity this September. We are confident that we can continue to provide a safe environment, continuing the rigorous cleaning protocols that we have had in place while adjusting to any changing regulations.  

We are under the authority of the MD State Department of Education, Montgomery County, Office of Child Care, Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control.

Our Parent Orientation will be on Tuesday, September 6 at 7 pm. for adults only. Enter the building through the Preschool doors at the rear of the building where you will be greeted, given an information packet and further directions. Important information will be shared in this meeting. Please make every effort to attend.

On Friday, September 9 our students visit

Mrs. Watkins and Mrs. McDonald’s 3s will visit from 9:30 - 10:30

Mrs. Hicks and Mrs. Deist’s MWF Pre K students will visit from 10:30 - 11:30

Mrs. Herbert and Mrs. Dolly’s M-F PreK students visits from 11:30 - 12:30

Children will have an opportunity to meet their teacher and see their classroom.

Please limit the number of people visiting the classroom, if at all possible, get a sitter for siblings. Children will receive their DCP book bags when they visit.


No child can attend school without a medical form completed by your doctor.

Forms can be downloaded on our website. Tuition is due before the 10th of each month, and the amount remains the same regardless of attendance or absences.

The first day of school for students will be Monday, September 12. Temperatures will be taken as the children enter the school and they will be given  hand sanitizer. We encourage you to “kiss & fly”. Parents’ lingering in the hallways make separation more difficult and add to the congestion.
