Early Learning Network of Central
The Early Learning Network of Central is a partnership created to increase the quality of Central's early childhood programs. Our collaboration helps to ensure that all children enter school ready to succeed. We also strive to make it easier for families in the community to access information to help you make the best choices for your children. We are excited to support the children and families of the Central Community!
Please remember that it is a privilege for your child to have been chosen to participate in our Pre-K program. It is very important that your child be present every school day. Your child may be dropped from the program if he/she fails to attend daily.
We do understand that young children do get ill. Upon returning to school, you must send an original doctor’s excuse to your child’s teacher. A copy of the excuse will be kept in the classroom to send to the State Department of Education and the original will be kept in the office.
Hours for Extended Day:
Morning: 6:40-7:40 Extended Day
Please make sure that your child can stay for at least one hour of this service. Alternative arrangements for transportation must be made for Early Dismissal days. This program can be used at any time of the school year, however, it cannot be used as a day to day service.
The Extended Day program follows a schedule and the classroom teacher collaborates with Extended Day staff so that the teachers can best meet the needs of the individual students.
*Please request information by writing a letter to your child's teacher.*
Parental Involvement is a major component of our Pre-K and Kindergarteners. We welcome anyone who would like to volunteer in the classroom, attend field trips, and/or other school activities.
Parents must follow office procedures to sign in and receive a visitor’s pass before entering any classroom. You must also sign the parent sign in sheet in every classroom as well.
