Rooted in Learning: Growing Strong Foundations in Pre-Kindergarten

Thursday February 2, 2023
3:15 - 4:45 PM
Room 240-242

The young child’s brain is growing and developing the capacity for all later learning. The skills that children learn during their early years lay the groundwork for their future academic endeavors. Title I funds can be used to support and enhance early childhood programs, and this session will tell the story of how Virginia Beach City Public Schools creates meaningful educational opportunities for Pre-K students. In this session, the following topics will be discussed: selection of at-risk students, effective professional learning opportunities for early educators, best practices to build family engagement, meaningful use of funds, and effective curriculum development and implementation in order to build strong foundations for young learners. The cyclical process of assessing, planning, and teaching is highlighted in the Pre-K program using data from statewide assessments. This session is relevant to district leaders, school leaders, and classroom teachers.
