Our Commitment to Excellence

In 2015, A Child's Garden became one of the only Early Childhood Programs in Anne Arundel County to be awarded the highest rating (check level 5) under the Maryland EXCELS program based upon nationally recognized quality standards and best practices.


In 2005, A Child’s Garden joined the very few independent preschool programs to be accredited by the Maryland Department of Education Early Childhood Accreditation Project.  This means our management, staff and curricula meet the highest standards in Maryland.
