Judy Center Mission: “Supporting Teachers, Children and Families in Achieving School Readiness”
This mission requires the development of collaborative, integrated programs and approaches that support the young children's development in social and emotional, language and literacy, cognitive and general knowledge, approaches toward learning, and physical well-being and motor areas enhancing readiness for school while supporting families in their abilities to support their children's early learning.
The Judy Center's purpose is to ensure school readiness for all students entering school by providing comprehensive, integrated, full-day, full-year services that promote school readiness for children birth through age five.
