Welcome to the Judy Center Early Learning Hub at H.H. Garnet Elementary School! 

The Judy Center Partnership is a collaboration between community agencies in Kent County dedicated to providing comprehensive, community-based, early learning programs for pre-school children and their families. 

We believe that all children should enter school ready to learn and that their families are the foundation for their children’s early success.

A special thank you to our Judy Center partners!
