About the Cecil County Judy Center

  • The Cecil County Judy Center Partnership promotes school readiness and success through collaborative community partnerships to offer a full range of services for children birth to age 5 and their families.   

    The Judy Center is located in Thomson Estates. The Judy Center is a grant through Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) held by Cecil County Public Schools. The purpose of this grant is to provide services to families who live in the Thomson Estates Elementary School feeder pattern in order to increase school readiness for children entering kindergarten. Judy Center services are open to all families in this catchment area with children in the birth to five years old.  There is no fee or registration required for our events. Services designed specifically for your family can be coordinated by calling Thomson Estates and asking to speak with a Family Service Coordinator. Judy Center services are available year round. Please join us for some of our upcoming events and call us for more information! 

    This program is funded under the Judith P. Hoyer Early Child Care and Education Center Grant as authorized by the Judith P. Hoyer Early Child Care Enhancement Program. Annotated Code of Maryland, Education Article, Section Paragraph 5-213.
