Milwaukee Educare

Educare Milwaukee CMYK logoIf you are looking for full-day, year-round Head Start or Early Head Start services for your child, Educare could be the right option for your family. This unique program begins at six weeks and continues with children through K4.

Educare is part of a national network of 21 schools. Milwaukee was the third city in the country to open an Educare school. The methods and curriculum are all about getting your kids ready for school. Highlights include low child-to-teacher classroom ratios, continuity of care, highly qualified staff and equal attention to your child’s mental, social and physical development.

Our teachers also work hard to enhance your relationship with your child and treat you as a valued partner in their education. We even incorporate music, art and dance in the program.
