EDUCATION

Our preschool curriculum identifies four areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language.

The Curriculum used includes: Foundations in Literacy, Handwriting without Tears, Second Step and Personal Safety, ECHOS science curriculum, Houghton Mifflen Math, and Creative Curriculum. 

FAMILY SUPPORT

In addition to proving a high-quality preschool program for children, families participating in ECEAP are involved in Mobility Mentoring, working with a Family Support Coach to support their family's journey to economic self-reliance. Using the Bridge to Child and Family Self Reliance, families identify and set SMART GOALS to increase family well-being. 

Family Support services include supporting each families unique needs, such as accessing community resources, referrals, and school involvement and advocacy.

HEALTH SCREENINGS AND NUTRITION

All students receive height, weight, vision and hearing screenings twice a year. Additionally, families receive support in completing regular well-child exams and dental screenings, as well as referrals for individualized health or nutrition needs.
