Early Childhood

early childhood center

The first five years of a child's life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shape children's health, happiness, growth, development, and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general. In this important period of development, children need positive early learning experiences, and Centennial is committed to providing quality opportunities for preschool learning.

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

Parents are a child's first teacher, and Early Childhood Family Education supports families in this important work. Centennial ECFE offers quality learning opportunities and resources for families with children from birth to kindergarten age, regardless of financial circumstances.

Early Childhood Screening

Screening is a free check of a child's hearing and vision, height and weight, immunizations, motor skills, speech and language skills, and general development. State law requires that children are screened before they enter kindergarten.

School Readiness Preschool

School Readiness Preschool includes a parenting component. Research has shown that early childhood programs that involve parents and children learning together are more effective than programs that only focus on the child. Involving families early encourages parents to play a more active role throughout their child's education.
