School Readiness program for children ages 3-5.
The Lewiston-Altura School Readiness Program is a Parent Aware 4 star Program designed for children ages 3- through Kindergarten entrance. Licensed staff provide a daily curriculum and prepare developmentally appropriate activities that are designed to engage the children through play to develop confidence in learning and exploring their environment while having fun and making new friends.These activities aid in building a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning. Children who meet age requirements can enroll at any time. Those turning three after the school year has started may enroll in January if space is available as an introduction to Preschool.
All children enrolled in School Readiness must meet Early Childhood Screening requirements within the first 90 days. (See additional links on our page)
Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)
ECFE is a program for families with children ages birth- age 5 or kindergarten enrollment. Early Childhood Family education (ECFE) classes offer support for parents and family members of children from birth to kindergarten entrance. Parents and members have the opportunity to interact and discuss various topics as decided by the group, with the focus on how children learn and grow and our interactions with them. For separating classes, during the first part of class, the parents and the children enjoy activities together. The second part of class, the parents join together with a licensed teacher while the children stay with the Children’s Teacher for snack and more activities. This is a fun and informal group that meets once a week throughout the year. Come join us and meet families in the school district. You can find out what's happening in the community, ask questions and share resources!
