The goal of the Early Childhood Department is to identify, locate, and provide services to children ages 3-5 in our co-op area. Children may qualify for services under IDEA or the Arkansas Better Chance/Arkansas Better Chance for School Success programs.
The Early Childhood Department of South Central Co-Op is comprised of two divisions:
Arkansas Better Chance pre-school classrooms funded by the Arkansas Department of Health and Human Services.
Early Childhood special education services are individually planned to prepare a child for future school success. Services are provided in a variety of childcare settings including ABC Preschools, Head Start Classrooms, Private Daycare/Preschools, etc. Children receive services in the areas in which they show a need.
