Early Learning - "A Foundation for Life"
Eagle Talk
by Jonathan Payne, Asst. Principal

At Northland we have the vision that all area children will be ready for kindergarten, then 3rd grade content reading, and ultimately lifelong learning.

The foundation for this lifelong learning is laid during a child's crucial earliest years. Arriving at kindergarten, children draw on their knowledge and skills in a wide range of learning and academic standards. These areas include social/emotional, self-help, physical, cognitive/conceptual, and language/communication. When children have the opportunity for learning experiences before kindergarten, there is a corresponding increase in what we call "school readiness".

Northland Community Schools is a member of NECC (Northland Early Childhood Collaborative) along with the Remer Family Center, and Leech Lake Head Start. Working together our goal is to provide quality birth through 5 programing in a wide variety of areas. Funding of Early Learning programs is accomplished through a variety of sources including scholarships administered through Minnesota Department of Education and Regional area grants.

Upcoming events include our initial ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) offering November 30th, and a Family Fun Night in mid-December. Details will be finalized before Thanksgiving and posted in the Pine Cone and on the school's electronic sign.

Questions may be referred to Jonathan Payne, the Early Childhood Program Coordinator at Northland Community Schools 218-566-2351.
