Importance of Attending Preschool Regularly

Research finds that early chronic absenteeism (being absent 10% or more of the school year) is associated with lowered proficiency in reading and math. There is strong evidence to show that more time in quality early care and education is associated with strong, positive outcomes for children.

Thank You!

Thank you for attending our U4C Family Fun Night Open House on September 27 th . We had 70 people attend the event! It was fantastic to see so many of our community partners, funders, donors, board members, providers and their families get together and have a chance to mix and mingle with other members of the U4C family!
24:1 Early Childhood Learning Center

It's apple picking time and some of our young scholars noticed that apples come in different sizes and colors and were curious to know why. We made apples the topic of one of our lessons and had an apple tasting to explore the different tastes of the different types of apples and decorated our classes in "apple colors". If you would like to hear more about what we are doing at the 24:1 Early Childhood Learning Center, check us out below.

As much as we would hope that accidents or injuries never happen, it is always best to be prepared should an emergency occur. CPR and first aid are essential for everyone to know, especially those that care for children.

Click below to learn more about our Adult and Infant CPR and Adult and Pediatric First Aid. Both classes meet DSS and DHSS requirements.
