Waynesboro Public Schools is working to give families a high-quality pre-school experience

Pennsylvania
The Waynesboro Public School District is teaming up with First Start Partnerships to give families in the area a high-quality pre-school experience at the high school.
 
On Wednesday, many were at Waynesboro High School to get a look at what will be offered next school year. Any employee of Waynesboro Public Schools will be able to enroll their kid at the pre-school and high school students will be able to get a first-hand experience working with small children with this program.
 
It actually provides them with the expectations of a childcare center that would help prepare them the best for starting kindergarten, said Barbara Martin, Hooverville Elementary principal.
 
But it’s also having a high-quality teacher, so a certified teacher in every classroom with all the curriculum and all the assessment that you would expect in a school setting, said Annette Searfoss, President and CEO of First Start Partnerships.
 
According to school officials, just 2-years-ago there were no pre-school programs in the Waynesboro School District. Now, there are five and will be even more next year.
