Grant-Funded Preschool - Preschool For All (PFA)

"The pre-kindergarten at-risk initiative, also known as (PFA program) serves children who, because of their home and community environment, are subject to such language, economic and like disadvantages that they have been determined, through a screening process, to be at risk of academic failure."

Children are selected for our program through a screening process. We use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3), which is a standardized screening instrument that measures each child's development in the areas of communication, problem solving,  fine motor, gross motor, and personal-social.  Other factors such as family systems, and health risk factors may also be considered. The criteria used to determine eligibility for the at-risk (Preschool For All) program is the child's performance on the screening instrument and parent interview.

If you would like to schedule a required screening please contact:
