Our Early Childhood Motto
Ready to Grow......Ready to Learn......Ready to Succeed
Our Mission Statement
The Floyd County Schools Early Childhood Program is shaping the future by empowering children and families so that each child enters school ready to engage in and benefit from early learning experiences that best promote the child's success.
The future strength of the Commonwealth of Kentucky depends upon the healthy development of our youngest citizens. Our mission, therefore, is to build upon existing resources, foster public-private partnerships, ensure collaborative planning and implementation, and mobilize communities to: support and strengthen families; assure that all children grow and develop to their full potential; provide high quality, accessible, affordable early care and education options; and promote public awareness of the importance of the first years for the well-being of all Kentucky's citizens.
The Vision for Kentucky…
…is that all young children in Kentucky: are healthy and safe; possess the foundation that will enable them to have school and personal success; and live in strong families that are supported and strengthened within their communities.
The Floyd County Schools Early Childhood staff and programs are dedicated to our mission and vision. We understand fully the privilege and responsibility we have to every child entering our programs. Early Childhood staff members are dedicated and focused on providing students a great start to their school careers. They prepare students for transitioning into elementary school and build confidence and skills in each child for personal success and school readiness. Strong parent involvement and participation is encouraged, fostered, and appreciated. The benefits to both children and families are long lasting. The research clearly indicates that children attending Early Childhood programs have greater success in school. We are proud to make a difference in the lives of the children we serve and empower our students and their families to be informed, confident, and contributing citizens in shaping our future.
If you have a child turning three or four before October 1, we invite you to register for consideration to participate in the Early Childhood Program. The Floyd County Schools Early Childhood Program serves three and four year old children in Head Start and Preschool.

This year, the registration period will begin in April for new students for the next school year. Together, as partners, we collaborate with parents and other community agencies and organizations to continue to be a program of excellence for our youngest citizens. We are proud of our Early Childhood Program and invite you to join us as a participant, volunteer, or program supporter.
