Child Outreach Developmental Screening is a free, voluntary service that assesses a child’s development, readiness skills and learning style and offers important information about resources that are available in the community. VOWS recruits, trains and certifies all volunteers who administer the testing. We also provide preschool screening services to the East Greenwich Public Schools on a fee for service basis.
In addition to our tutorial services, classroom materials preparation, media and library assistance, VOWS also recruits volunteers to serve as Senior Project mentors and judges to support the district's graduation by proficiency program. Our training programs include the training and certification process for Child Outreach Developmental Screening, training in presenting the Heads Up curriculum, the Reading Tutors program (designed by the Language Arts Supervisor for the Warwick Public Schools, it is dovetailed with the language arts curriculum) and training in Interactive Read Aloud for volunteers who wish to read to early elementary classes.
