School Readiness Outcomes



School Readiness Plan



CESA #11 Head Start employs highly qualified teachers who enjoy working with young children and their families. All teachers have an early childhood background with either an AA or BS degree. Many of our centers collaborate with local school districts to provide 4K education and teachers in those classrooms are all DPI licensed by the state of Wisconsin.

Our teachers provide on-going assessment and incorporate activities into the classroom that meet the unique needs of each child. Teachers are trained on Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards (WMELS), The Pyramid Model (for social/emotional health), and the Head Start outcomes framework. Understanding the development of children, from birth to age five, enables teachers to be intentional and thoughtful in their daily interactions.

Children learn through play and our teachers recognize the importance of allowing children opportunities to investigate, explore, and manipulate their world. Our teachers are early learning advocates who spark the curiosity in children and instill a love of learning.
