Early Head Start
At the YWCA Child Development Centers, infants and toddlers learn through creative and responsive instruction in a nurturing environment designed to maximize their potential and prepare them for success.
Through the focused development of literacy and school readiness, we believe all children of Lubbock deserve the finest care and highest quality education. The YWCA, in collaboration with South Plains Community Action Association, offers early learning classrooms with the primary focus of stimulating a child’s imagination and fostering their academic, social and emotional development.
All YWCA Early Head Start teachers have a Child Development Associates and significant training in the special needs of early childhood and the impact of high-risk factors in the home and family. There is frequent interaction with parents and an emphasis on helping parents develop strategies to support each child’s specific needs.
Our classrooms utilize the Infant and Toddler FrogStreet Curriculum, a comprehensive, research-based curriculum designed to integrate instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines. In conjunction with this, the classroom learning framework in the five essential domains are:
- Social and Emotional Development
- Language Development and Literacy
- Approaches Toward Learning
- Cognition and General Knowledge
- Physical Development and Health
There are no fees or tuition for students enrolled in the Early Head Start program.
