Early Learning Census: New Families & Newborns

Do you have a new baby in your household?  Is your family new to the Proctor or Hermantown School District and do you have children younger than kindergarten age? If so, we would like to hear from you!

The Proctor and Hermantown School Districts offer a combined early childhood program for families with young children and maintain the birth to kindergarten age census. By adding your family to our census, we will be able to keep you informed of special events, classes, and opportunities that are fun, educational, and necessary as your child grows older. Information provided to the ECFE office will not be shared with anyone outside of the school district.

Early Learning Enrichment Opportunities

Early Learning enrichment opportunities are offered throughout the school year and summer to families with 3-5-year-olds. These opportunities run independently from the Early Learning Department. They are designed and implemented with our Youth Enrichment Coordinator. STEM, stories, fun, and messy are the theme of these enrichment activities.

Arrowhead Head Start

 Arrowhead Head Start provides early childhood educational and school readiness services to preschool children in a classroom setting. Classes are full day, Monday through Thursday, with snacks and meals provided. Transportation may be available.

Children receive developmental assessments in order to target and work on individual needs. All activities are designed to help children build their educational and social skills in order for them to be successful in school. Contact 800-662-5711 or visit their site for more information.
