Welcome!

The most extraordinary period of growth and development in a child’s life occurs during the early childhood years and lays the important foundation for learning.

Evergreen Public Schools is committed to partnering with parents and early educators to ensure all future Evergreen students come to school healthy, curious and full of enriching experiences that will help them begin their formal education already well on their way to becoming engaged, life-long learners.

“The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 turn out– Bill Gates Sr.

Child Care

Children gather the building blocks for school readiness long before they enter school. From birth, children need to be read and talked to, cuddled and hugged. They need places to run, jump, pretend and use their creativity.

For many children, high-quality childcare helps make sure they get the academic, physical, social and emotional development they’ll need to learn and succeed in school.

You can find family and center-based childcare businesses listed among Evergreen Early Learning Partners who have been recognized for their commitment to professional growth and collaboration with schools to help prepare our youngest learners for school and life-long learning.

Preschool

Children who experience high-quality preschool education that includes a whole-child program that addresses physical, social and emotional development as well as foundational academics, are not only more likely to have a positive and healthier start to school, but also more likely to do well in school, to graduate from high school and even go to college.

Kindergarten

The transition into school represents an important milestone in a child’s life. When children and families experience a positive transition to school, children are more likely to be involved and succeed in school.

WaKIDS is a transition process that helps to ensure a successful start to the K-12 experience and connect the key adults in a child’s life. For additional information about this program, please download the WaKIDS brochure.

Child Development & School Readiness

Evergreen Public Schools understands the importance of high-quality early learning experiences and that every child and family has unique gifts and abilities that are to be celebrated and nurtured. We hope you will find these resources helpful in supporting families as their child’s first, most important and life-long teachers.
