Welcome to the Judy Center at Summit Hall ES Early Learning Hub! 

Collaboration and partnerships with the community lie at the heart of Maryland’s Judy Center Early Learning Hubs. Judy Centers are not childcare centers but a comprehensive hub where families can participate in family learning experiences and receive services and support. In Title I and high-needs elementary schools in every Maryland jurisdiction, Judy Centers empower a child’s first teachers - their families - by supporting child development and early learning skills for our youngest learners from birth through kindergarten. 


The Montgomery County Public Schools Gaithersburg Judy Center Grant Partnership program brings together a system of comprehensive early childhood services for families and children from birth to age 5. The Judy Center is a part of the Montgomery County Public Schools Department of Elementary Curriculum and Districtwide Programs and enlists the aid of its many collaborative partners to support school readiness. The Gaithersburg Judy Center serves children and families who live in the Summit Hall Elementary School attendance areas. To find out your child's home school, use the School Assignment Tool or call the Judy Center at 301-284-4170. 

Our services include classes for children ages birth through four years old, family involvement and activities, referrals to full-day, high quality early childhood programs, service coordination and family support, early identification and intervention, adult education and parent trainings, and professional development for community child care providers.
