The Partnership for Children of Wayne County has added 58 More at Four slots to the 2005-2006 programming year. That brings the total number of children served to 468, a 14.2 percent increase from last year and an 867 percent increase from its inception in 2002.
The More at Four program is Governor Easley's free preschool initiative that serves eligible at-risk 4-year-olds. Children must have turned 4 on or before October 16. The 58 additional slots will allow the Partnership for Children of Wayne County to open up three new classrooms.
These new classrooms will be located at Tommy's Road Elementary, Kids and Company Child Care and Wee Are the World Child Care. The additional slots will also allow for the expansion of two existing classrooms, one at Wonderland Child Care and one at Royall Avenue Head Start.
The Partnership for Children is accepting applications for enrollment in available slots at Carver Elementary, Fremont STARS, Happy Days Child Care, Kids & Company, Rhyme University, Small World Child Care, Tommy's Road Elementary, Wonderland Child Care and Wee Are the World.
Applications can be completed at the Partnership office, 800 N. William Street Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. For more information, contact Valerie Wallace at 735-3371, ext. 231.
