Early Beginnings

The Early Beginnings Program is Pascagoula-Gautier School District's first step in the Destination Graduation journey. This program is designed to assist parents, teachers, child care providers and community agencies in ensuring that our children enter kindergarten with the necessary skills to be successful.

Connecting with our Students and the Community!

The Early Beginnings Program strives to connect with our current students, future students, parents and stakeholders throughout our community. We provide the following programs and activities to assist the children in our community in meeting developmental milestones, developing their imagination and creative skills while building the foundational skills for kindergarten.

The Early Beginnings program also partners with the local Excel By 5 Coalition and the Mississippi Gulf Coast Health Coalition to provide resources and access to developmentally appropriate materials and manipulatives.
