Early Head Start y Head Start

CADC ofrece un programa de desarrollo infantil completo y apropiado para la edad para niños de 3 a 4 años. Ponemos énfasis en el niño en su totalidad y reconocemos la importancia de la familia en la vida de cada niño. Se anima a los padres a ser parte de las actividades diarias y a ser voluntarios en los centros. Las reuniones mensuales de padres se llevan a cabo en cada centro y un padre de cada ubicación sirve en el Consejo de Política de la Agencia, que supervisa el programa. Los estándares educativos cumplen o exceden los requisitos del Departamento de Educación de Oklahoma y el plan de estudios y las evaluaciones están alineados con los Estándares de Pre-Kindergarten de Oklahoma, las Pautas de Aprendizaje Temprano de Oklahoma y el Marco de Desarrollo y Aprendizaje Temprano de Head Start. Todos los niños inscritos en Head Start reciben un examen físico y dental, así como evaluaciones de la vista, la audición y el desarrollo. Se invita a los miembros de la comunidad a convertirse en voluntarios en los centros y experimentar Head Start de primera mano.
