About Our Program
Judith P. Hoyer Early Child Care and Family Education Centers (known as "Judy Centers") provide a central location for early childhood education and support services for children birth through Kindergarten and their families who reside in specific Title I school districts across the State of Maryland.
Judy Centers are unique because they promote school readiness through collaboration with community-based agencies, organizations, and businesses. This integrated approach promotes program and service delivery that is conveniently located in or near Title I schools, ensuring that young children who may begin school at a deficit are given opportunities to start their formal education on a level playing field with their peers. -MSDE website
Follow these steps to help reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related causes of infant death: Always put babies to sleep on their backs during every sleep time. Lay babies to sleep on a firm sleep surface covered by a fitted sheet. Put babies to sleep in a separate sleep area in the same room where you sleep. http://www.nichd.nih.gov/SIDS
