Who's Judy?

Judy Hoyer’s dream and life's work was to improve the lives of young children. Before she passed away, Judy had succeeded in shaping and enhancing the futures of thousands of students throughout Maryland. Her life shines as an example of what one individual can accomplish by boldly pursuing opportunities in the educational process to bring about positive change for children.

What is a Judy Center?

A Judy Center is where the needs of families are met through many different agencies. At the Frederick County Judy Center, our goal is to improve school success through early intervention and comprehensive services to families. 

Eligibility & Referrals: 

Any individual who resides in the Waverley elementary school districts with a child or children from birth through kindergarten are eligible for Judy Center services. Either an FCPS staff member or the family may contact us directly.
