EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

NOW SERVING CHILDREN
AGES 3 TO 5 YEARS

Curiosity, the engine of learning, is a miracle that starts at birth.
Our Early Childhood Programs helps children grow and develop from ages 3 to 5 so children are
excited and ready for kindergarten. Early childhood education helps children learn how to plan,
persevere, solve problems, and work collaboratively – key skills for success in school and life. Our
programs operate out of nine locations in the county, serving all families, including those qualifying
for Head Start and Special Education. If you have a child between ages 3 and 5, please contact
or visit the location nearest you to learn about the many benefits of Early Childhood Education.
