Early Bird

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.  As of the 18-19 school year, we will have two Early Bird classrooms–the original classroom located on the campus of Indian River Academy in South Vero and a new classroom located on the campus of Dodgertown Elementary School in Gifford.  Funders include Head, Heart, and Hands of Indian River Club, Impact 100, Indian River County Children’s Services Advisory Committee, John’s Island Foundation, John’s Island Service League, the Prentice Foundation, and United Way of Indian River County. 

This is a free program for low-income families.

Children must be 3 by September 1.
