The Early Bird Program is an early childhood education program for 3-year-old children. It mirrors the Head Start Program but is funded with local dollars. For the 19-20 school year, we will have one Early Bird classroom located on the campus of Dodgertown Elementary School in Gifford. Funders for the 19-20 school year include: Education Foundation of America, Impact 100, Grand Harbor Community Outreach, Hauser Family Foundation, Indian River Community Foundation, John’s Island Service League, PNC Foundation, United Way of Indian River County.
This is a free program for low-income families; local funding partners are making an $8,700 investment in each child each year!
Children must be 3 by September 1.
