Jackson R-2 Early Childhood Center

During the past 10 years, educators have increasingly turned their attention to research and practices that affect young children. This has been the same for the Jackson R-2 School District. Many programs have been developed that address the significant learning that takes place from birth to five years of age.

The Jackson R-2 Early Childhood program is based on four guiding principles:

  • Parents are vital to the education of their children.
  • Every effort will be made to offer children age three to school age and their families a full continuum of early childhood services that are appropriate for each child.
  • The early childhood program will form partnerships with other community agencies and services available for children age three to school entry.
  • A long lasting partnership will be formed between parents and the school district as each focuses on the education of the child.
