Welcome to our Parent's Corner
Quality is Essential!

Having a quality early childhood experience is necessary and can be life-changing.  Science shows that 80% of human brain development occurs before a child turns age three...and the experiences that children have during this critical time in their lives can significantly impact their success in both school and later adult life.  Therefore, it is very important that in the early years a child experiences high-quality care. 

School Readiness

Our partners have come together to ensure that all children in our Central community are ready for Kindergarten.  A child's school readiness depends on the child's attitude towards learning, social skills, physical skills, cognitive abilities, and emotional competence.  Our programs are committed to providing high-quality care to ensure all children are ready for Kindergarten by age 5.
