Welcome to the Early Learning Center

  • Dear Families,

    Welcome to the Clarke County School District Office of Early Learning site. We are excited to partner with you and your child on their journey to become a successful lifelong learner.

    The Clarke County Office of Early Learning Programs are based on the philosophy that parents are their child's first and most important teachers. Our staff is committed to working in partnership with parents and the community to increase educational opportunities available to our students. We believe children learn best in classrooms where structured, age-appropriate activities are provided, with activities that embrace cultural and individual differences. CCSD Office of Early Learning programs use standards-based instruction that emphasizes growth in language and literacy, math, science, art, music, physical and social development. We believe children can reach their fullest potential when home and school work together toward common goals.

    Within our site you will find:

      • Program information including program specific links for:
        • Pre-K
        • Head Start
        • Early Head Start
        • Preschool Special Education
      • Program handbooks intended to inform you of the policies and procedures that guide the operation of Office of Early Learning programs (Pre-K, Head Start, Early Head Start, and Preschool Special Education). These guidelines help ensure that your child receives rich, research based learning experiences in a safe and nurturing environment.
      • Resources for Families:
        • Educational Websites
        • Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards

    We look forward to partnering with you and your family this year and welcome your feedback throughout your enrollment in our programs.

    Best wishes for the coming school year.

     

    Sincerely,

    Karen Higginbotham

    Director, Office of Early Learning
