Our early childhood classrooms may look familiar, but what happens here is quite different. We've put together a special team to help children learn – even when their families may experience real stress. We know parents and families make a big difference in their child's education. That's why supporting families is important in our preschool classrooms.
Extra support means the classroom really delivers what children need. We have special resource teachers, family support workers and family liaisons to help children and families who may be struggling.
These children may be years behind other kids their age. Our team gets extra training and professional development to help children make big gains in early learning. Our teachers aim for best practices, and coaches guide their progress.
Independent evaluators from UNMC Munroe-Meyer Institute guide program improvements. The expectation is that teachers and children are always improving.
As an educational coach, Amy Schmidtke works to help our teachers be as effective as possible. With a coach for every four classrooms, teachers have the support they need. READ
