A new program is in planning stages. The Refuge is in conversation with Blythe Head Start to create an enrichment program. This program will begin with the enrichment of 12 pre-k students twice a week for 30 minutes each session. Our goal is to challenge students who are ahead in their learning and to enhance knowledge and understanding for students who may be a little behind. This will ensure that these students will be ready for Kindergarten. We have purchased online programs that we will be using with the students to either challenge or enhance their abilities and knowledge. Our methodology will also include teacher led skills instruction, practice, and games.
This will be a great enrichment program for these pre-K students. The main focus will be on reading and writing, while also using art and music to make learning fun!
We anticipate that this program will come to fruition as we work through the planning and approval stages.
