Birth to 5 Introduction and Application

     The experiences and skills that children develop during the early years are critically important to their success later in school. What children learn during the first few years of life helps to lay the foundation for their future growth and development.  The Jefferson Davis Early Childhood Community Network is designed to assist families with selecting the most appropriate early childhood experience for their birth to 5 children.  The JDP ECCN consists of the Jefferson Davis Parish School System, Save the Children Head Start of Jennings and Elton, and Childcare Centers Brite Beginnings and Blooming Bull Pups of Jennings. All organizations work together to provide a positive and developmentally appropriate educational experience for your child.
