The 2020-2021 School year is here! We at The Partnership want to be sure that you have all the proper information to register your child in our Early Education Programs! There is still time to register your little one in our Durham Early Head Start and Durham PreK programs virtually! Time is winding down and you will need to have your child registered by September 8th 2020 in order to increase your chances of securing a virtual seat for this school year. Our Wonderful Staff at Durham’s Partnership for Children are waiting to help you navigate your Early Childhood Education experience. To apply please reach out to our Durham Early Head Start Program Coordinator Deidre Morgan firstname.lastname@example.org or our Pre K Program Specialist Melissa Radice Peguero email@example.com .

Question of the Week
Question: With the school year starting completely remote, where can I find resources to help support my child’s learning?
Answer: The NC Office of Early Learning has put together resources for parents to support learning while it has to be remote. On this site, there are remote learning activities for children birth to second grade, tips for schooling children at home, and resources for discussing COVID-19 with your children. All of the remote learning activities do not require technology and are aligned with NC standards for each grade level with new activities being added every Friday. To view these resources, visit https://sites.google.com/dpi.nc.gov/nck-3fap/home?authuser=0.
To ensure every child in Durham enters school ready to succeed, we lead community strategies for children birth to age 5 and their families that promote healthy development and learning and enhance access to high quality care.
