A report from the Maryland State Department of Education found that during the 2008 and 2009 school year, young children who participated in pre-kindergarten and other child care and education services at the center were better prepared for school than those students who did not attend. Even students receiving free and reduced-priced meals, Special Education services and help with English Language were found to be “fully ready” for kindergarten if they had first attended a Judy Center or an early learning program, the report said.
