Education support focuses on families with children ages two to five, to prepare them for kindergarten. The program is led by a CAPA/PREPARES Education Support Specialist with over thirty years of experience in education. This provides an extra layer of support giving children the tools they need to be successful in their first years of schooling and providing ongoing support to parents navigating this new system. Education support also provides GED and ESL support for mothers and fathers.
