Title 1 Pre-K

North Carolina’s Title I Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program is grounded in the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s philosophy of developmentally appropriate practices (NAEYC, 2009). Classrooms are child centered and designed to promote the development of the whole child, including all developmental domains described in Foundations, North Carolina’s early learning standards (approaches to learning, emotional and social development, health and physical development, language development and communication, and cognitive development). Learning experiences are meaningful and relevant for every child and reflect his or her developmental, cultural, and individual circumstances.
