The Point Breeze Head Start Center provides high quality early childhood education and care to children ages three through five years. The Center offers a welcoming environment and an engaged teaching staff to build positive, nurturing relationships in a child’s early years. Preschool and pre-k classrooms are offered at the Center with supportive transitions into each program. Care begins at 8:30 a.m. and extends through 2:30 p.m. each day.
The program implements Teaching Strategies’ The Creative Curriculum and follows an age-appropriate, project based lesson plan. This curriculum also provides teachers with an observation tool so they can fully support each child’s individual learning and communicate any successes and challenges with parents. Daily activities include reading, circle time, outdoor play, and hands-on educational activities that create a balance of learning and play for students.
Through a partnership with Head Start, the Center helps to ensure kindergarten readiness for every child. Head Start services focus on school readiness and the social, mental, and emotional development for low-income families with children between the ages of three to five. In addition to education, Head Start programs offer families health, behavior, and nutrition services.
Each day at MELC, you can expect that your child will walk into a happy and safe environment led by our highly qualified, energetic and friendly teachers. MELC Point Breeze was developed in partnership with Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) in Philadelphia.
