Early Childhood Education in the WSESU: Our Credo
We believe that each and every young child has the potential to thrive at home, in school, and in community life. We know that all young children need nurturing relationships with adults and supportive environments at home and in early education settings to be successful learners and to sustain positive interactions with peers and adults. Some children will need more targeted learning opportunities or services to help them reach their full potential, and through specialized services, family engagement, and collaboration with community partners, WSESU is committed to providing early education and support so that all children have the best start possible in school and in life.
Early Head Start and Parent Child Center (PCC). Our services include: Head Start & Early Head Start classrooms, Early Head Start Home Visiting, the Welcome Baby Program, playgroups, the Dedicated Dads program, a monthly dental clinic for children 0–3, information and referral services to connect families with area resources, support groups, and parent education classes. We also partner with Vermont’s Economic Services to provide Reach-Up case management to young families.
