Having both a Social-Emotional Curriculum and Academic curriculum we are helping to build strong foundations for our students. Both curriculums are taught by Ballard’s Teachers and Education Coordinator. Second Step is the Conscious Discipline based Social-Emotional curriculum. This program is designed to help guide children to learn, practice, and apply skills for self-regulation and social-emotional competence. Learning Without Tears is the Academic based developmental curriculum we have implemented in our Pre-K classrooms. This program is accessible at all points within the wide spectrum of needs and skills children have while also inviting participation, building a base of understanding, and challenge children’s thinking.
Having both an Education Director and Education Coordinator helps provide additional services that include:
Ballard also assists families by connecting them with resources and services needed to move toward mental and financial stability. Our staff has received trauma informed training and have held positions such as “Family Connection Coordinators,” so they equipped with the tools to help families navigate the system and crises everyday. This may be as simple as guiding them to the on-site food pantries or as complex as attending court hearings to support individuals going through difficult legal matters.
The Ballard Center partners with families to achieve stability through early childhood education and needs-based services by cultivating a strong network of organizations, businesses, and individuals dedicated to serving our community.
