Children & Family support
Services

Our children and family services offer a comprehensive continuum for educating young children and supporting their families. Our services offer early childhood development and family support, preschool learning centers, and K-6 STEAM charter schools. We believe every child has the right to quality education, and every family deserves the best educational experience for their child.

EARLY CHILDHOOD
DEVELOPMENT

Early Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports a child’s development in many areas such as language, literacy, and social and emotional development. Emphasizing the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher; our programs help build relationships with families that support family well-being and are designed to nurture healthy attachments between parent and child.

Preschool

In preschool, children will learn to strengthen their social and emotional development. Children learn how to compromise, be respectful, and problem solve. Preschool provides an environment for children to explore, gain a sense of self, play with peers, and build self-confidence.
