SPPS Office of Early Learning partners with childcare to reach children and families at a range of ages, in a range of settings, prior to entering kindergarten. Through these partnerships, our Partnerships Coordinators aim to develop relationships with families of young children at their early stages and support them with resources, experiences and tools as children develop.
Childcare partnerships allow SPPS to engage with children and families within the communities where they reside. These partner opportuities are designed to support children's stages of development and early transitons, including their transition and adjustment in kindergarten. The outcomes of partnership are many and include shared learning, awareness of district resources and navigation, familiarity of culturally specific adult-child interaction and child-rearing practices.
