Early Education

TEAM offers many different preschool options. TEAM Early Education’s preschool rooms are funded through Head Start federal and state grants, State School Readiness grants and State Child Day Care grants. All children receive comprehensive child development program that addresses the needs of children and families in the area of education, social services, health, nutrition, disabilities and mental health, and parent involvement.

Most programs are offered 5 days weekly, and children are participating in developmental activities which prepare them for success in kindergarten. The program offers half day and extended day preschool. Breakfast, lunch and snack are served at no cost to parents.
