The growing consensus regarding the importance of early education stands in stark contrast to the disparate system of care and education available to children in the United States in the preschool years.  Programs for preschoolers vary widely in quality, content, organization, sponsorship, source of funding, relationship to the public schools, and government regulation.


Our programs are developed to provide quality cognitive stimulation, rich language environments, and the facilitation of social, emotional, and motor development. Likewise, adequate education for young children can occur only in the context of good physical care and warm affective relationships. Indeed, research suggests that secure attachment improves social and intellectual competence and the ability to exploit learning opportunities. Neither loving children nor teaching them are in and of themselves sufficient for optimal development; thinking and feeling work in tandem.

Learning, moreover, is not a matter of simply assimilating a store of facts and skills. Children construct knowledge actively, integrating new concepts and ideas into their existing understandings. We have an opportunity and an obligation to facilitate this propensity to learn and to develop receptivity to learning that will prepare children for active engagement in the learning enterprise throughout their lives.

Our program argues the support the development of the full range of capacities that will serve as a foundation for school learning. As the child is assimilated into the culture of education in a setting outside the home, early childhood programs must be sensitive and responsive to the cultural contexts that define the child's world outside the school or center, and they must build on the strengths and supports that those contexts provide.

We will first identify young parents that are in need and through a classroom process, either in home or at an outside location we will explain the benefits of early reading and nutritional programs.  We feel the gap in this process is the identification of the target group. By going out to the homes of the targeted group we feel we can better identify children and families at risk.
