Our early education centers provide students with high-quality academic and social-emotional education. Starting as young as six-weeks we engage parents to ensure a strong support system for their success well beyond preschool.

Our Approach

We apply an integrated approach to educating the whole child within the context of his or her family. Starting as young as six-weeks, our Early Head Start and Head Start classrooms promote school readiness by supporting health, nutrition, mental health, social/emotional, and cognitive development.

I love the relationship my daughter has with the teachers, they make me feel comfortable – they go the extra mile.

-Janet, PLN Parent, Early Childhood

We found the layout and design of your site to be nurturing and stimulating for early learning.  It was clear that the children were settling into their routines well as they are being guided by a dedicated team of professionals.
