The Early Childhood Education program promotes school readiness and parental engagement by enhancing the cognitive, physical, linguistic, social and emotional development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children, from the ages 0-5 years old and their families. These services are responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage encouraging the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teachers. The program builds relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well-being and connections to peers and community.

Services include:

  • Developmentally appropriate early childhood education services utilizing an evidenced based curriculum in a school campus or center-based setting.
  • Nutritional services.
  • Assistance in obtaining health services (medical and dental).
  • Mental well-being.
  • Services for children with disabilities.
  • Parent, family and community engagement opportunities.
