Judy Centers

It’s Never Too Early To Learn.

What’s A Judy Center?

The Judith P. Hoyer Center Early Learning Hubs, also known as “Judy Centers,” benefit everyone in Maryland by improving the quality of life for families. Through a dedicated staff of early learning professionals, they help prepare children age birth through kindergarten for school readiness. Located at Title I schools in every Maryland county, Judy Centers play an important role in the communities they serve.



Judy Center Services

Although each location is uniquely positioned to serve its individual community, all of Maryland’s Judy Centers employ the two-generational approach, which focuses on creating opportunities for and addressing the needs of children, parents and families.

Ensuring that children are ready for kindergarten requires a coordinated effort among parents, providers, teachers, school districts, local and state government, non-profits, business, and other community partners.

Judy Centers work with a variety of partners to offer the following services and more:

  • Adult Education
  • Case Management
  • Child Care Assistance
  • Developmental and Health Screenings
  • Family Engagement Activities 
  • Parenting Classes
  • Play Groups
