"To Ensure Lasting Achievement For All Early Learners"
The Office of Early Learning coordinates the Pre-Kindergarten Program and is responsible for providing support and education for staff and families to ensure high quality education for children the year before Kindergarten to prepare them for school success.
Pre-Kindergarten classes focus on teaching children to see themselves as capable learners, develop reading, writing and math skills, and work well with other children and adults.
Blast Off is a collaboration of community partners seeking to generate community awareness and action in St. Paul by supporting schools, families and children preparing for a smooth transition to Kindergarten.
Early Learning Coalitions seek to integrate the relationships young children and their families have with individuals and organizations so these systems work together to impact the whole child.
