Jerome Hardeman Early Childhood Center
The Jerome Hardeman Early Childhood Center offers a year-round, full day academic program in a safe and engaging environment for children ages 2.9 months to 5 years of age, including UPK. Literacy and math activities help children gain the skills for future school success. A wide array of physical activities and outdoor play help children develop strength, balance and motor skills. Art, music and drama round out the day. All children receive healthy and nutritious meals each day – breakfast, lunch and snack.
Our programs support English, dual-language learners, and children with IEPs. Families are engaged to become active partners in supporting their child’s language development.
