Ada Early Childhood Center houses educational programs which are all geared entirely to Early Childhood. Ada Early Childhood Center Pre-Kindergarten program is an optional all-day program for children 4 years of age as of September 1. The Kindergarten program is for children 5 years of age as of September 1. We also house a Pre-School Program for developmentally delayed children age 3-5 years.
Ada Early Childhood Center students participate in a regimented academic program which includes reading, math, language arts, science and social studies. Also included are activity classes such as physical education, music and library science. Center time is also a favorite as it includes semi-independent and independent learning in the skill areas listed above and also in visual arts and fine-motor development. There are small group intervention classes in the areas of reading and math for those students who need support services.
Ada Early Childhood Center is a designated A+ School. The A+ Schools Program is a whole school reform model that views the arts as fundamental in how teachers teach and students learn in all subjects. The A+ Schools Program creates statewide networks of schools that choose to adopt and implement the A+ philosophy and practice and make a commitment to participate in network activities. The A+ Program is a nationally recognized as an effective researched-based strategy for sustainable school reform.
