The Young SchoolSM Receives
MSDE Accreditation for White Marsh Location

White Marsh, MD

The Young SchoolSM, located in White Marsh, MD, is proud to announce its newly-minted accreditation from the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). White Marsh joins the King’s Contrivance and Kendall Ridge locations in Columbia, MD as the third The Young SchoolSM, and one of just a few Maryland preschools, to receive such a prestigious honor.

Always proactive about developing the best experience for young children, The Young SchoolSM decided to commit to the voluntary preschool accreditation program as a way to continually set higher standards for their schools. The MSDE Accreditation Program measures many criteria, such as staff credentials and training, classroom size, school curriculum, interaction with parents and incorporation of technology into the classroom among other factors.

"We're extremely proud to be recognized as an Accredited Program by the MSDE - It is wonderful knowing that our program and teachers represent the highest quality and best practices in Early Childhood Education,” said Michelle Giove, Head of School. “Our teachers work very hard to provide each child with hands on learning opportunities and experiences that will last a lifetime."

The Young SchoolSM, which pioneered the Cottage Learning Environment, accepts students from infancy through Pre-kindergarten. Using a philosophy that is influenced by two internationally acclaimed early childhood educational approaches, Reggio Emilia and Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), children become part of a nurturing community where they are active participants and learners.
