    Deep Run Learning Together Program

    The Deep Run Regional Early Childhood Center (RECC) toddler and preschool programs are making preparations for classes for the 2018-19 school year.  These classes include children with and without disabilities.  The program’s focus is helping all children develop communication, literacy, math, problem solving, motor, and social skills.  Parents of children who will be 3 by September 1st or 4 years of age may pick up an application package in the front office.

    All applications must be returned by the last Friday in March. A limited number of openings are available for children without disabilities.  Children are selected based upon screening information given on the application form and the “Ages and Stages Questionnaire,” as well as observations of the child’s participation in a playgroup.  If necessary, a lottery process is conducted.  

    If you have any questions, please contact Ruth Gibson at (410) 313-5000.

    Families are needed to share their cultural heritage by preparing a traditional food, bringing in everyday items from other countries, such as dishes, clothing, art, flags, maps and pictures.

    Deep Run students who participate in cultural arts of other countries are invited to perform at an arts showcase.  If your child is studying traditional music, dance or other arts, please ask the instructor to consider having the entire class perform, as well.
