Our goal is to ensure that children are ready to enter Kindergarten. The early childhood development programs we provide, including Head Start, concentrate on literacy and school readiness for children ages zero to five.
We focus on the individual needs of each child. Assessments are performed when the school year begins and then at periodic increments. Teaching staff regularly review results to determine each child’s progress. Recommendations are made to enhance continued growth and development.
