An Innovative Place
Place matters. And each Educare is designed to send a clear message that early learning is a worthy investment. Most Educares – like the two in Omaha – also are built adjacent to an elementary school to underscore that children are learning from their earliest weeks, months and years.
Spaces inside and outside each Educare encourage interactive learning so teachers and children can read together, act out stories, create artwork, practice counting, and even conduct simple learning experiments.
Significant space also is devoted to family-related activties, including one-on-one counseling and support groups for mothers, fathers and grandparents.
Each Educare also offers computers to facilitate parents’ efforts in job hunting or in researching elementary schools their children will eventually attend.
