Giving children a strong foundation for life

A child’s future is determined by their healthy physical, emotional, cognitive and social development, as well as their school readiness. Unfortunately, children of teen parents are vulnerable to developmental delays, behavioral issues, child abuse and neglect.

They are rarely enrolled in preschool and often unprepared for Kindergarten.

Our Kidsters program provides children of teen parents with both an early childhood education curriculum and early intervention services to give them a strong start in life.

Kidsters objectives are to:

Provide and maintain a safe, supervised and nurturing environment

Promote healthy social, emotional, physical, and literacy growth

Promote value and self-worth

Provide ongoing assessment to detect abuse or neglect, development delays and behavioral issues for early intervention

Ensuring kindergarten readiness with evaluations 2x/year

Eat a healthy meal each week and provide transportation

All children in Kidsters benefit from screenings twice per year to ensure they are reaching developmental milestones. Preschool age children are evaluated twice per year in the areas of key school readiness skills to ensure they are prepared for Kindergarten.
