Nurturing from the Start

Good beginnings and promising futures start in Tri-County’s early care programs and are enhanced with programs designed to give parents the skills needed to help their children succeed through all their formative years. Our goal is to impact positively on all facets of a child’s life: early childhood education and development, mental and physical health, safety, nutrition, family life and parenting.

Early Reading First

Tri-County was asked to partner in an Early Reading First Grant which involved five North Providence Head Start preschool classrooms. Participation involved working closely with Mentor-Coaches and delivering the Open the World of Learning (OWL) curriculum. The program is designed to:

  • Enhance children's language, cognitive, and early reading skills through professional development for teachers;
  • Provide early language and reading development and instructional materials;
  • Provide preschool-age children with cognitive learning opportunities;
  • Use screening assessments to effectively identify preschool children who may be at risk for reading failure; and
  • Improve existing early childhood programs by integrating scientifically based reading research into all aspects of the program
