In 2004, the Early Childhood Department expanded its birth to three services. A teacher of the deaf certified in early childhood deaf education will be working with the Hartley Family Center and with service providers in other surrounding counties. Additionally, it is our goal to develop workshops and provide consultations for professionals providing services to families who have young children whom are deaf or hard-of-hearing. We will continue to offer a Parent/Play Group. This meeting is open to:
- Families who have young children (0-3) with a hearing loss
- CODA families (0-3)
- KSD's early childhood families
- KSD's lower elementary families
- Surrounding area school district families who have children with a hearing loss in an early childhood program.
While the families are having a meeting in the Early Childhood Office, the children are involved in a playgroup in the Early Childhood center.Meeting Information
