Early Education and a Foundation of Literacy
Early learning changes lives and is critical to success in school and beyond. Collectively, East Lake’s Early Learning partners are committed to supporting families in creating a foundation for academic success.
The Cox Pre-K Program, East Lake Early Learning Academy and Sheltering Arms Early Education and Family Center offer high-quality early learning opportunities that provide a strong foundation in literacy.
Operating in partnership with the Rollins Center for Language and Literacy at the Atlanta Speech School, students enter Kindergarten ready to learn to ready and are a path to read-to-learn by third grade. The Rollins Center also provides professional development to teachers and staff through coaching and mentoring, modeling, co-teaching, guided observation and feedback sessions. This successful partnership and technique serves as a model for quality early language and literacy instructions across Georgia.
