Importance of School Readiness

child teacherParents are a child’s first teacher. And who better to teach them, than those who love and understand so well their individual needs? During these important years of development in a child’s life, school readiness programs unite with parents as partners to make certain children achieve social and emotional well-being.

Our school readiness programs use age-appropriate curriculum, employ trained early childhood educators and work closely with parents to assess developmental achievements. By doing this, we prepare children for school and ultimately for life. We recognize how important it is to invest in children, they are our future!
