The Pre-K Program currently serves 140 children and families at 6 locations. All sites are quality approved through Arkansas’s Better Beginnings. Each classroom has twenty (20) students enrolled and is led by a state licensed teacher and a paraprofessional. We serve children who have turned 4 by August 1st of the year in which they will attend. The Curriculum is designed to meet the Arkansas Child Development Early Learning Standards.
