Our History and Philosophy


Corkran Preschool began as a kindergarten in 1955, by Mrs. Katherine Dobbie, and was one of the very first Kindergarten programs in Prince George's County.  Since that time, the program has grown and expanded to include two, three, and four year old children. 

Corkran Preschool and Kindergarten provides a rich, satisfying, and constructive "first" school experience.  We believe a child's self-confidence and positive self-worth is best developed in a warm and caring environment where children are encouraged to think for themselves and solve problems according to their individual developmental level and ability.

Maryland State Law requires that the child must have reached the age of the class by September 1. Kindergarteners must be 5 years old by September 1.
