Early Learning

​​​​​​​​The Early Years ​​set the foundation for lifelong learning. 

In SECPSD, we offer a variety of supports for children and families before formal schooling begins (Kidsfirst programs, Early Learning programs,​ Prekindergarten programs​, IMPACT events, Welcome to SECPSD events​) that recognize the family as the child's first and best teacher.


If you are curious about your child's growth and development:

Download the Milestone Tracker mobile app​, or visit ​​the CDC Milestone Webpage​.​
