#SuperSchoolShoutout: Early Learning Program!
Posted on 03/27/2024

We’re showing our #CPSDPride by giving a #SuperSchoolShoutout to the Clover Park Early Learning Program (ELP)!

CPSD offers Head Start, Early Childhood Education Assistance Program (ECEAP) and Early Childhood Special Education at many locations in our district including Beachwood, Custer, Dower, Evergreen, Hillside and Tillicum elementary schools as well as the Early Learning Center.

The ELP is available for children ages three to five who will attend CPSD in the future. The program provides children with opportunities to learn and grow by learning skills they will need when they start attending school.

“This program is one of the best ways to get strong foundational learning and preparation for kindergarten and it provides children opportunities they may not have elsewhere,” ELP Supervisor Karen Schreiber said. “We have a quality program that focuses on the whole child with a lot of parent involvement to create an enriching experience for all children.”

ELP teachers plan meaningful daily lessons that encourage children to develop and practice behaviors such as persistence, empathy, problem solving and thinking skills. The program supplements the ways children are developing their young minds at home so students can enter kindergarten ready to learn.

“I love working with the children, staff and, of course, the families,” ELP Supervisor Schreiber said. “We have an amazing group of educators who love what they do and do it so well.”
