Early Childhood Application Event Planned for June 2-3

The LPSS Early Childhood Department is hosting a special event on Wednesday, June 2 and Thursday, June 3, 2021 to assist parents with completing an application for their children. The event will be held at the Vermilion Conference Center, located at 326 Gauthier Road, and will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. both days.

Parents of children ages birth to five are encouraged to attend to learn more about the high quality early childhood programs available in Lafayette Parish, as well as various options for child care assistance and funding. LPSS Early Childhood staff will be available to answer questions and help parents review options and select a program that fits their family’s needs.

Research has shown that children who experience a high-quality early education are more likely to graduate from high school and less likely to require special education classes. That’s because 90% of brain development occurs before the age of five, making it essential that children receive high-quality care and instruction during those crucial years. In particular, children from birth to three especially need access to these programs in order to be ready for Pre-K by age four.

Parents can also visit enrolllafayette.com to register their child for one of the many high quality early childhood programs available. This event is designed to help parents understand the options available to them, answer their questions, and assist them in completing their child’s application. For questions about the event, call 337-521-7134 or email ecnetwork@lpssonline.com.
