Partnerships with Pre-K
This is a unique program offering children the opportunity to learn in a classroom alongside Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education students from UMF.This partnership provides the children with many opportunities for increased attention and support as there are more adults in the classroom however, the amount of practicum students in the classroom at any one time is limited to four. The program also includes a partnership with Child Development Services (CDS). CDS is the agency that provides special education for children who qualify for these services. The inclusion of children with special needs is integral to the fabric of the Pre-K program. We are also partnering with Community Concepts-Head Start and serve 8 Head Start children in Mrs. Neal’s Thursday/Friday session. This partnership allows us to increase services for those children/families who qualify.
