PURPOSE: To provide positive, nurturing experiences essential to helping at-risk children ages 3-5 develop physically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally. As future academic success in school is strongly influenced by the character of early experiences, children identified as being at-risk of academic failure can realize greater opportunities for success through their early identification and participation in the pre-kindergarten program.
ELIGIBILITY: Children who because of their home and community environment are subject to such language, cultural, economic and like disadvantages that they have been determined as a result of screening procedures to be at-risk of academic failure are eligible.
