Temple Emanuel Early Childhood Center
2017-2018 Preschool Enrollment
It’s hard to believe that the new school year is right around the corner! Enrollment for 2017/18 is quickly approaching and Temple Emanuel Early Childhood Center will soon be welcoming new families to our program.
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood learning and the progressive values of Temple Emanuel, we foster a love of exploration and discovery.
Children ages 2 to 5, along with our professional educators, share their days together in our highly-respected, full-day, year-round program.
We invite you to visit and see us in action. Director, Madeline Gold, is happy to set up an appointment at a time convenient to you.
Contact Director Madeline@templeemanuelmd.org for a visit.
We value the time we get to spend with prospective families. For more information about our school and/or if you would like to schedule an appointment to visit OR if you plan to enroll your child and/or sibling in the program, please contact Director of Early Childhood, Madeline Lowitz Gold at 301-942-2000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

In addition to your completed contract, please see below for important documents and materials that must be completed and returned to the Early Childhood Center before your child can be enrolled in school.
Electronic Records vs. Paper Records: First off, 'Thank You' to all of our preschool families who worked with us during the 2016-2017 school year to audition a new, online system for record keeping. Your feedback during the process was invaluable. While we will continue to research other options to help streamline the process, the decision has been made to revert back to hard copy, paper record keeping for the foreseeable future. We appreciate that some of our families found the online process easier to navigate and are working to minimize any impact from this transition back to paper. Our goal, as always, is to partner with our families so that communication flows with ease while meeting and maintaining all of our state licensing requirements.
New Families (new as of January 2017) will need to fill out hard copy forms to complete their child's enrollment. The links to all necessary forms can be found below.
Returning Families (families who entered prior to January 2017): Provided you completed the online form for 2016-2017, we do not anticipate the need for you to fill out any additional paper forms. If the state licensing board changes their requirements, we will communicate those changes to you at that time.
If you have any questions, please contact the office at 301-942-2000.
