Our Focus

The Individual Child

Our preschool curriculum is high quality and is tailored to meet each child’s needs and interests. Individual learning plans and goals are created with the family, and we provide tools for each child to be successful.

Nutrition

We provide nutritious food following USDA guidelines. Children are provided up to 2/3 of their daily nutritional requirements while attending our programs. We work closely with families, their physician and our registered dietitian to meet each child’s special dietary needs. Families can share recipes and culturally diverse meals are offered. Classes on gardening, nutrition, shopping for and cooking healthy foods are available. (Click here to view a sample menu)

Health

Children who are healthy are better learners. EOCF provides health screenings for hearing, vision, development, and height and weight. We support and encourage families in getting regular well-child care. We can help families find a physician, get insurance for their children and connect to other community resources as needed. Outdoor learning and physical activity is important for children’s development and is provided each day

Dental Care

Families are supported in getting dental checkups each year as it’s hard for children to learn when their teeth hurt. We can help families get dental insurance and find a dentist who cares for young children. All toddlers are provided a toothbrush and toothpaste in the classroom and are encouraged to brush their teeth at school each day.

Family Engagement

All of our programs encourage family participation in the classroom. We also offer free classes with childcare for parenting and child development, health and nutrition, leadership and advocacy, budgeting and shopping, plus fun family events. Parents have an opportunity to join the Parent Policy Council. Our Family Advocates can help parents and guardians locate medical, dental, education and employment services and other community resources.
