The ABC (Arkansas Better Chance) Program was created for 3–5-year-old children whose family’s gross income does not exceed the 200% of the Federal poverty level. Our objective is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes development and enhances learning for each child. We strive to establish relationships with the families of the children in our care and to collaborate with our community members to deliver high quality Early Education services. The program utilizes a written overall curriculum plan that covers topics like cultural diversity, social and emotional development, and language skills. Children participate in a daily schedule that includes indoor/outdoor activities, quiet/active activities, individual/group activities, fine/gross motor skill-building activities, and children/teacher-initiated activities.
Qualifying children attend this program free of charge.
Our Pre-Kindergarten 3-4 classrooms are academically structured by skill level to offer an environment that encourages children to develop their capabilities and interests at their own pace and according to their individual need. This classroom provides academic, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development to children 3 to 5 years of age to ensure a successful start to elementary school. Our goal is to recognize the uniqueness of each and every child and provide positive encouragement for their continued growth.
STEAM explorations offer children the skills needed for lifelong learning. Pre-K children are
effective STEM learners due to their innate sense of wonder and curiosity. The DREAM STEAM environment offers children opportunities to learn how to observe, ask
questions, investigate, and use problem-solving skills that lead to innovative thinking. Students
ages 4-5 will receive the opportunity to help us pilot the first STEAM Pre-Kindergarten Class in
our community. This state-of-the-art classroom is equipped with all of the latest and
most relevant STEAM equipment and learning materials to provide your child with the most
meaningful and educational experience EVER!
