On April 16 from 9 a.m. to noon, Concrete School District, along with Head Start, will host a community event focused on community services for parents and their young children.

The event will take place at 7838 South Superior Ave., Portable “B,” in Concrete. It will include “Child Find,” Head Start, and Community Preschool Open House, and Early Head Start, which assists families with prenatal to three-year-old children. Other community resources in attendance will be Pregnancy Choices, WIC (Women, Infants and Children), SPARC (Skagit Preschool and Resource Center), a local dentist, and nurse.

Child Find
Concrete School District’s Early Learning Program (Preschool and Head Start) will conduct a “Child Find” on April 16 from 9 a.m. to noon, located in the Early Learning Building on the Concrete Elementary School campus, located at 7838 South Superior Ave., Portable “D,” in Concrete. “Child Find” is an opportunity for parents to bring their children ages newborn to five years old to the above-mentioned address if parents have concerns about their children’s speech, social growth, emotional growth or learning in general. If parents suspect that their children may need some extra help to learn and grow, the parents can bring their children to the district this day.

The parents can discuss their concerns with the Head Start teacher and the Special Education teacher, along with the Speech Language Pathologist, while their children explore the early learning school environment.

Afternoon community preschool opportunities
During the same time as Concrete’s Child Find, Concrete School District will host a preschool open house. This is an opportunity to visit the Early Learning Program teachers while your future preschooler explores the learning environment.  The Afternoon Community Preschool runs four days a week from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., during the school year. The cost is $60 a month. There is no transportation. The program focuses on preparing students for kindergarten. For more information on any of these programs please contact Leilani Thomas, Special Services Director, at 360.853.8116.
