Brown Memorial Weekday School is a warm and welcoming place with an exceptional play-based learning approach. Our daughter thrived tremendously when attending Brown, even though she didn't speak one word of english when she enrolled. The teachers are very well educated and the kids just love to go there.

Amazing school! The teachers are dedicated and the director is full of energy and heart! After visiting several preschools/kindergartens, it was obvious that Brown Memorial Weekday School is a rare treasure. The students, each one of them, love going to school. You can see it on their faces, in the artwork that is displayed in the halls, in their laughter when they play in the outdoor mud kitchen. And the teachers are equally as happy to see the kids! What a wonderful sense of place. We love this school!!!

My children have attended since age 2. There is nowhere like it in Maryland. The nurturing environment is perfect for all children and the curriculum allows a child to remain a child while learning. It foster a love of going to school.
