Flint, MI and Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) August 03, 2013
Learn It Systems is excited to announce that it will open nine new preschool programs in partnership with schools across Ohio and Michigan this fall. These new programs are a part of an ever-expanding portfolio of enrichment programs Learn It offers schools across the country to support improved student and school success.
“These new preschools are designed to help our school partners succeed by preparing students for kindergarten,” commented Bruce Henson, Learn It’s Vice President of Enrichment who leads Learn It’s early education efforts. “Programs such as these are important for bridging the achievement gap in these communities.”
Learn It’s preschool program focuses on getting three to five year old children started off on the right foot and ready for elementary school. Research has shown that strong early education forms the essential foundation for success in school and life. The program was designed similar to Learn It’s other educational services as it uses best-of-breed curriculum, rigorous tracking, and transparent reporting to ensure success. Learn It selected Higher Scope early education program as the main curriculum and the BRIGANCE® Early Childhood Screen to track and report progress throughout the year.
According to Rebecca Kotewicz, Learn It’s Area Manager in Ohio, “We developed the Learn It program to not only be fun and engaging for students, but also to use proven research-based methodologies to ensure students are learning and progressing towards their goals.”
The launch of Learn It’s programs coincides with an increased national policy focus on early education. The recently passed senate appropriations bill showed strong support for early learning, and over the past three months, Congress has allocated more than $90 million for early childhood programs in Ohio and Michigan alone.
Learn It offers both full and half day preschool classes and accepts tuition assistance through state childcare voucher systems. Parents in Akron, Cleveland, Cincinnati , Canton and Flint can register their child for a program at http://www.learnitafter.com. Public, private and charter school administrators interested in starting a program in their school are encouraged to visit Learn It’s website to learn more about its services.
