Educare Kansas City
A state-of-the-art early childhood school, Educare gives young children and their families in Wyandotte County a strong start for a successful future.
Educare Kansas City is part of Project Eagle, which offers multiple home-based and center-based early childhood education and comprehensive family support programs in Wyandotte County, Kansas. The Educare school serves as a model of excellence to illustrate to both the public and private sectors the importance of providing the highest quality learning environments for low-income young children and their families.
Educare KC provides comprehensive, full-day early education to children birth to five. The year-round program promotes the healthy development and school readiness of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers through high-quality, evidence-based teaching and classroom practices as well as intensive family engagement.
Beginning in 2010 when Educare KC opened, program outcomes along with child and family outcomes, have been evaluated to document gains, highlight areas of need, and provide data to Educare KC administrative and teaching staff. These data are used to inform our efforts to provide quality early learning experiences for children and families. Program assessments and observations focus on measuring skills necessary to succeed in school such as social/emotional and problem-solving skills, language, early literacy, early numeracy, program and classroom quality.
