Kindergarten Program

  • Monday through Friday (9:15 AM–1:00 PM) $330.00 per month

This three-quarter day program is designed to meet and exceed the expectations of a typical kindergarten program. The small class size allows more one-on-one interaction between the student and the teacher. Learning to function in a group, yet maintaining their individuality is our goal. Each child will be encouraged to advance at his/her own pace. This program is recognized by the MSDE.

 

*Note: Children not meeting the age cut-off guidelines and wishing to gain early admittance to Kindergarten must obtain a waiver from St. Mary’s County Public School System.

School Closings

Our school follows the St. Mary’s County Public Schools for emergency closings. Information concerning the closing of school due to inclement weather or other unforeseen emergency will be announced on local radio and television stations as well as the St. Mary’s County Public Schools web-site. General rules for our school:

  • SMCPS open 1 hour late: HUMP&K will open one hour late for our AM classes and end at the regularly scheduled time. PM classes will begin and end on time.
  • SMCPS open 2 hours late: HUMP&K AM sessions will be closed. Kindergarten will open at 11:15 and end at the regularly scheduled time. PM classes will begin at 12:30 and end on time.

These will be noted in the monthly newsletter and on your child’s classroom calendar.
