All children will enter kindergarten ready to learn. Each family will be empowered to support their child’s development and engage in partnership with their school communities. Baltimore County Public Schools will welcome and support all children and facilitate their smooth entry into kindergarten in their neighborhood schools.
Baltimore County’s Birth-to-Five Services will provide equitable, high quality services, grounded in evidence-based interventions, developmentally appropriate educational services, authentic partnerships, and high quality practices for each eligible child and family.

  • We believe that every adult involved in early intervention and preschool services can change the trajectory of a child’s life forever.
  • We believe that families are our children’s first teachers and are essential partners in the early intervention and education process.
  • We believe that every child needs to be considered a child first. Their diagnosis or other life circumstance is not the sole definition of who they are or what their future holds.
  • We embrace and respect each family’s culture, and are committed to providing services that are compatible with each family’s beliefs and customs.
  • We are committed to creating a culture of respect and success in every interaction with children and their families, schools, community partners, and colleagues.
  • We are committed to collaboration among families, community agencies, private partners, and schools as essential for optimizing opportunities for children.
  • We are committed to making early intervention and preschool services and programs available and accessible to all families in their neighborhoods.
  • We believe it is critical to provide opportunities for all children to learn and interact with their typically developing peers, with the supports necessary to ensure success.
  • We believe that as stewards of public resources, we are responsible for offering an efficient and equitable system for all participating children and families.
