The Waterbury Public School Early Childhood Education Program (ECEP) services approximately 500 students and supports a staff of over 80 employees. The student population is composed of 92 three year old children and 412 four year old children. Most students are considered academically high risk based on pre-screening. We have 31 classrooms in 12 of the citys Elementary Schools. ECEP offers both full and half day programs and supports a fully inclusive model in 17 of its classrooms. The program also includes 14 co- taught classrooms. We receive our funding through several grants, namely: Title 1 and 2A, School Readiness, Early Reading First, Magnet School and General fund.
We have created a standard-based curriculum using power strands. When creating this curriculum, we aligned the Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework with the Connecticut Mathematics and Language Arts Standards, the National Common Core Standards, National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and International Reading Association recommendations. We use common formative assessments based on these power standards. Our program also utilizes summative assessments such as PALS, PPVT and ELLCO. Small teams meet in data groups on a bi-weekly basis to affirm the implementation of the 5 Step Data Process Model suggested by the state. SRBI/RTI groups are held daily in all our Pre-Kindergarten classrooms to ensure we are meeting the needs of each and every child, both socially and academically – at their appropriate level.
