The CS department leads the agency in the planning and implementation of curricula in all mediums such as the classroom, Home Base option, Early Head Start and Family Literacy. The department is also heavily involved with the exploration of modern child development research and theories, component responsibilities that enable the agency to offer quality, up-to-date educational experiences & opportunities to children and their families.
