Early Education and Care
Penfield’s mission is to create a positive start in life for infants and children, many of whom have developmental delays or disabilities by providing early education, health services, and family programming. Through our holistic model, the Early Education and Care Program contributes to Penfield’s mission by fostering children’s cognitive, motor, social, emotional, behavioral, and communication skills during the most critical period of early brain development. Additionally, the Early Education and Care program empowers parents, many from disadvantaged circumstances, with the skills and knowledge to support their children’s development, navigate complex health care and school systems, and connect to community resources.
Penfield’s Early Education and Care Program includes:
Our Early Education and Care Program promotes academic milestones, social-emotional development, and healthy lifestyles for children ages four weeks to six years. Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, Penfield’s program is awarded the top score by YoungStar, Wisconsin’s rating structure for child care programs. The program serves approximately 120 children annually (numbers have been lower during COVID), 70% of whom are economically disadvantaged.
