The Prep Academy Head Start Program provides a stimulating and culturally appropriate learning environment, using an evidence-based curriculum that prepare children to be successful in school and later in life. Research indicates that a high-quality early childhood education can positively impact things like school retention and graduation rates; decreased need for special education services; college enrollment and attendance; and employment, including higher life-time earnings.
The Prep Academy contains state-of the art enhancements for supporting early childhood education; the newest technology: smartboards for the teachers to use to engage the children; touch-screen tablets for interactive learning; and innovative digital learning tools developed by leaders in early childhood education.
The Prep Academy incorporates materials to reflect the linguistic and cultural diversity of families. The classroom environments are welcoming to all children and must help them grow up in an inclusive society. We provide access to an outdoor play space that promotes habits of healthy physical activity and motor skill development. It also helps young children to increase their sense of cooperation and autonomy.
In short, the onsite Prep Academy at the Chrysalis Community Center, operated by Community Action Council, will serve as a rich foundation which will help prepare children to be successful in any of their next learning environments.
