The Perry Hall Children's Center is a Cooperative Preschool that is run by a board of directors and is located at St. Michael's Lutheran Church. It has been in operation since 1972 and is accredited by the Maryland State Board of Education. Designed to be small, it only admits 14 3-year-olds and 18 4-year-olds, and part of the program requires parents to be present at the preschool sessions on a rotating basis, hence the co-operative part of the program.
