Children First Preschool
The project built a new 10,000 SF facility with a spacious reception area, six classrooms for pre-school and a full kitchen. The outside includes a playground for the kids. In keeping with the children’s theme, the front of the building has two columns shaped and painted to look like giant crayons. The goal of Children First is to “provide children with what all children deserve” – a safe place to learn, nutritious meals, and a nurturing environment with individualized attention. With a strong emphasis on training and education, the staff is well equipped to provide the services that have earned them the “Program of Excellence” designation from the National Head Start Association. Nurturing Dads, Just for Moms, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren and Partners for Life are some of the programs conducted at the new building. With their new facility, the staff will be able to continue and further their goals to help alleviate some of the strains that poverty imposes on children and their families here and the surrounding areas.
