Welcome to C.E.S. School Readiness!
C. E. S. School Readiness Program is a comprehensive, high quality early childhood program for three and four-year-olds who reside in Bridgeport, CT. Our hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., 50 weeks per year. Students are required to attend the program for a minimum of six hours per day.
Tuition is based on a sliding scale according to the family’s income. All families who are eligible are encouraged to apply for Care “4” Kids. Returning siblings will be given first priority. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received. However, the program makes every effort to balance each classroom by age and gender.
C.E.S. School Readiness received NAEYC accreditation in March, 2009.
C.E.S. School Readiness Program philosophy centers on the belief that each child is a unique learner with his/her own cultural identity, learning style, temperament, and developmental pattern. Each of these factors influences how the child learns and grows; development and learning are interconnected in the preschool years. We believe that each child’s family is an important partner in the daily care and education of their children. Staff members strive to know each child as an individual and to work in partnership with the family to know, understand, and plan appropriate learning experiences for each child in their care. A warm, caring relationship between teachers and children is the foundation for creating a nurturing classroom community where children respect, care for, and learn from one another.
