Families with children aged birth to five have a number of programs that they can participate in free of charge. The district is dedicated to building a ‘continuum of support’ that fosters nurturing, responsive relationships between young children and their families, their communities and their schools so that children and families will thrive and develop an early and lifelong zest for learning. We believe all young children are unique, capable and full of potential. We are committed to partnering with parents and community agencies to support the overall well-being and healthy development of young children.

We offer a variety of programs to support early learning for children before they enter school. Our programs highlight the importance of oral language and play-based learning as foundations for cognitive, emotional and social development.

We carry “…the hope of inspiring and supporting the creation of rich, joyful early childhood spaces where children, adults, ideas, and materials come together, and where knowledge is constructed about learning and living in ways that are local, inclusive, ethical, and democratic.”
