Welcome! The Early Learners program in U-46 is a partnership of family, school and community working collaboratively to provide comprehensive services to young children. Services are provided by highly-trained early childhood professionals. Curriculum and practices that are appropriate for the child's developmental level are used to meet the diverse needs of young children in a culturally sensitive environment.
Attending an early education program can help get young learners off to a good start in their more formal learning experiences.
Attendance provides opportunities for:
- improving self-help skills
- increasing self-confidence
- improving language development
- enhancing motor development
- encouraging appropriate social skills
- beginning a life-long interest in learning
Certified Early Childhood teachers are supported in their work with the children by classroom assistants, therapists, social workers, nurses and others. In addition to the team working with students at school, the children's early learning experiences also need the active support of parents to be successful. It is important that parents are partners with the staff throughout their child's education.
U-46 offers the following learning opportunities for young children:
- birth-3 home visiting
- drop-in play groups
These services are offered in English and Spanish.
