3431669973_1f6ac34b68_b.jpgMother's Day Out and the Early School Program, established in 1977, offer a calm yet stimulating learning environment for children ages two through five. The teachers work to make children's first steps from home to school a positive experience so that they will eagerly look forward to future school experiences.

Mother's Day Out, which meets Tuesdays 10:00am-2:00pm, focuses on expanding children's knowledge and awareness of the world through stories, games, crafts, and learning activities. Children in this program build self-esteem and security, develop appropriate interaction with other children, enhance large and small motor skills, learn to follow directions, and become aware of their capabilities.

The Early School Program, which meets Thursdays, 10:00am 2:00pm, focuses on readiness skills. Curriculum for older students includes pre-reading, opposites, phonics, math, and other age-appropriate skills. Younger students focus on colors, shapes, rhymes, and counting.

92011_125647_2.jpgCheverly Weekday Nursery offers developmentally appropriate activities and learning for children ages three to five. The program has served the community and local families since 1970. Weekday Nursery offers two enrollemnt options: full day (8:15am-2:45pm) or extended day (8:15am-12:15pm) and aftercare is available.

At Cheverly Weekday Nursery, children have a place to grow outside the home. The faculty helps students learn more about themselves in relation to other children, to adults other than the parents, and to the world around them. They strive to help children grow in the richest, most satisfying, most constructive way while preparing for the school years ahead. Learning is hands-on, and designed to develop independent thinking, self-sufficiency, social and emotional maturity, and readiness for kindergarten. Children enjoy multiple free-play areas (including water, sand, art, dramatic play, blocks, science, manipulative games, and toys), story and music times, educational field trips, and more. In addition, children receive speech, language, vision and hearing screenings, personalized attention, and the opportunity to participate in annual Christmas and spring programs. Children are given the freedom to grow and learn in an environment balanced with enough guidance and structure for each child to feel secure.

Classes for all programs are held at the Cheverly United Methodist Church at Forest Road and Cheverly Avenue.

ages 5-12 (Kindergarten through 6th grade)

gnsout.jpgGladys Noon Spellman Elementary School serves more than 750 students from the attendance area. The school has a comprehensive curriculum.

The school was dedicated to the late congresswoman, Gladys Noon Spellman, a distinguished resident of Cheverly who represented the community on the county school board and county council, and in the U.S. House of Representatives. Mrs. Spellman was a teacher and began her civic involvement as president of this school's PTA in the Cheverly  community.

In 1991, Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary was constructed on the former grounds of Happy Acres Elementary, a K-3 school. The new school combined Cheverly-Tuxedo Elementary (grades 4-6), with Happy Acres Elementary. The new site was able to house students from both schools in one building. The school, which opened as a Model Comprehensive School, boasted a computer lab, science lab, an art room, and a foreign language component. In its second year, an ESOL program was added to the existing programs. The school has experienced rapid growth in enrollment and achievement. Since the late 1990s, the school has enjoyed numerous awards and recognition for its high scores on the MSPAP and other standardized tests. Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary School was cited by the Department of Education from data gathered by the University of Texas as being a high-achieving high-poverty school. In 2000, the school was selected by the Maryland Department of Education as a Peer Mentoring School to work with other high-poverty schools in order to raise their academic achievement.

St. Ambrose encourages its students to pursue their special academic talents in the hope that knowledge, diligently sought and acquired, will lead to wisdom that will serve both the individual and the community. Each student's intellectual development prepares him or her for further schooling and also for life. St. Ambrose seeks to develop in each student a broad breadth and depth of knowledge, to encourage in each student creative and aesthetic appreciation, and to increase its students' understanding of intellectual and cultural diversity.
