EARLY CHILDHOOD COMMUNITY NETWORK
As directed by Louisiana’s Early Childhood Education Act, Beauregard Parish has worked together to create a unified system of high quality, publicly-funded options to families to ensure more children enter school kindergarten ready. This network is a local early childhood community network that includes every public Pre-Kindergarten, Child Care, and Head Start program within the parish.
The state coordinates these community networks by designating a Lead Agency for each community to coordinate essential activities, specifically observations and enrollment. The Lead Agency also serves as fiscal agent.
Our network has been rated
for overall measures of classroom quality
by the Louisiana Department of Education
