Federal Programs Preschool –braided funding from VA Preschool Initiative, Head Start and Title I Four Year Old Program
The overall goal of Federal Programs Preschool is to provide students the opportunity to learn by helping them discover answers through hands-on learning activities that stimulate their curiosity and creativity. The Preschool Program curriculum strives to increase language development, motor and thinking skills and social interactions through cooperative learning activities. The curriculum also focuses on social, emotional and physical development. Currently, there are 30 Preschool classrooms in 22 of the elementary schools in Henrico County. Students attend preschool 5 days a week for 6 ¼ hours a day.
Breakfast, lunch and a snack are provided to those students participating in the preschool programs. The funding for Federal Programs Preschool is the result of grants (Head Start, VA Preschool Initiative, and Title I Four Year Old Program) braided to create one consistent program at all schools.
