The entrance to the Sorenson Early Childhood Center

We are accepting applications for the new Ready Start program located at Sorenson or Cottage Lake Elementary for the 2019-20 school year. The program is a blended multi-age, inclusive model, that will serve students who are ages 3-5.

Classrooms are taught and supported by a general education teacher, a special education teacher and a para-professional. Inclusive classrooms create a dynamic learning environment for all students. The average class size is 16, with a combination of general education students, those needing additional learning support and students from all socioeconomic backgrounds.

Staff is committed to fostering student learning and cultivating friendships while creating a sense of community for students from diverse backgrounds.

“Utilizing developmentally appropriate teaching strategies to support a whole child approach to learning, within an inclusive environment, fosters high levels of student learning and social and emotional growth for all students,” said Director of Early Childhood Doreen Milburn.
