The Family Partnership’s two preschools have openings for enrollment in our early childhood programs. We asked Cassaundra Davis, Director of our North Minneapolis preschool, to share how The Family Partnership’s early education and care services are unique and what parents need to know.
Tell us about The Family Partnership’s preschools.
When our kids graduate from preschool, more than 90% test kindergarten-ready. We have two locations, one at my school in north Minneapolis, close to Theodore Wirth Parkway, and one in south Minneapolis at east Lake Street and Bloomington Avenue. We are open Monday through Friday year-round and we educate children from ages six weeks until they are eligible to enter kindergarten.
What is unique about The Family Partnership’s preschools?
We offer small class sizes and we do that intentionally to make sure that we are giving every child the attention they deserve. The Family Partnership also uses what is called a 2Gen (two-generation) approach so we not only serve the child that’s enrolled in our program – we also get to know and serve the entire family.
What developmental services do you offer?
We offer all children enrolled in our program a developmental screening within the first 30 days, so we can remove any barriers to learning. Our therapy services are all offered on-site and include occupational, physical, speech and play therapy. We also offer all children dental, vision and hearing screens throughout the year. We just want to make sure to provide children the eyeglasses, dental work or extra boost they may need to be ready for kindergarten.
“We invite your family to become part of our family. We are dedicated to every child’s success and offer resources to the entire family.”Cassaundra Davis, Director North Minneapolis preschool
