A Message from Mrs. Fowler
At the Thomas Jefferson Early Childhood Center the focus is on preschoolers. Jefferson houses 15 classes that can serve up to 250 children between the ages of 3-5. There are ten half day MAPLE Pre-K At-Risk classes, two half day preschool language classes, four half-day special education preschool classes and one half day bilingual class. Classroom activities are designed around the children's needs and provide "hands-on" developmentally appropriate experiences. At Jefferson there is a strong emphasis on family involvement.
