The Saint Demetrios Pre-School has been on the grounds of Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church since September 1999. A non-profit, Accredited Early Education Program, the Saint Demetrios (Bilingual) Pre-School is a Ministry of the Church, is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education - Child Care Administration, the Archdiocese of America, and the Greek Embassy. The non-profit school accepts children ages 6- weeks through kindergarten. We believe in active learning in a Christian centered environment, which will ready the children to enter Kindergarten and encourage them to be curious and excited about lifelong learning and discovery. Our program enriches and enhances spiritual growth, cultural/ethnic components of Christianity.


Our vision is to contribute to the healthy growth and development of our children. We strive to provide children with opportunities that develop their intellectual, social, spiritual, emotional and physical skills. To embark on the journey of a lifelong interest and appreciation for spiritual and cultural yearning, our educationally based philosophy and curriculum will emphasize that each child will be elevated to his/her own individual potential at his/her individual pace.


To provide a learning and nurturing environment that develops the whole child by:

-Placing the emphasis on the importance of Christian beliefs.

-Providing an educationally structured climate for age-appropriate learning activities.

-Promoting Bilingual language (Greek) and cultural values in conjunction with the Church.

-Creates opportunities for the development of social skills.

Value of a Christian Education:

The children will sing simple songs throughout their day to remind them that they are SPECIAL and God Loves them. Teaching the children through music exploration and Guiding them by the important elements of our Orthodox Religion. Saint Demetrios Pre-School is an outstanding early education program in a secure Orthodox Christian environment. We also participate in Maryland Excels and are licensed under the Office of Child care and MSDE.

As part of the tuition structure of Saint Demetrios Pre-School, families support the school through service. Families fulfill their service obligation – 10 hours per family per school year– in

a variety of ways. Parents, grandparents, Guardians and/or adult siblings of the student may serve the hours. If the hours are served during the summer months, any time after the end of school in June, they will be credited to the next school year. Hours do not roll over from one year to the next, nor are the hours transferable from one family to another. If both parents work the same event, both parents receive credit. All activity must be school related and school approved. Here are just some of the many ways that parents support the school:

Volunteering to read to classrooms

Assisting at the Pre-School table during Saint Demetrios Festival

Greeting during Open-houses

Assisting with planning/set-up for Community Yard Sale

Assistance with the Annual School Auction

Helping with classroom parties/set up

Grounds Keeping (pulling weeds/mulching playground)

Serving/Prepping food for School sponsored fundraisers (Pancake Brunch/Spaghetti Dinner)

Assisting during School End-of-Year activities/Parties

(Additional Assistance will be requested throughout the School Year that can be used as Service Hours.)

Please know that in order for your service to count toward your service obligation, it must be documented on a Service Hours Log and Signed by a Representative of the Pre-School. Logs will be submitted to School staff prior to the end of the school year.

Parents may opt to pay a $100 fee to waive the service-hour commitment, and all families that fall short of the service-hour obligation are billed at a rate of $10 per hour (Deadline is June 1st) This is not encouraged as actual service is vital to the school community.
