Early Education Opportunities
In order for our community to thrive, everyone needs to have access to the appropriate education, and that starts with Pre-Kindergarten learning. The Battle Creek community proudly offers a variety of Pre-K education and child-care options.
Our community is employing several strategies to increase kindergarten readiness, including:
Creating equitable access to high-quality home visiting programs for families with children who are prenatal through age three. This is a part of a tiered system of supports that are based on the needs of each individual family.
Creating high-quality preschool programs for 3 and 4-year-old children. Ensuring that these programs are available to all families and that they are supported by a strong early childhood career pathway.
Creating a centralized access point of entry for families who are entering the early childhood system. This will remove barriers and support smooth transitions between programs and support services.
Establishing a data collection and valuation system to monitor and improve components of our community’s early childhood system.
Supporting the child’s entire health by utilizing a network of resources for: mental and physical health, trauma supports, education, family engagement and leadership opportunities, basic needs, and economic stability for families.
