Early Eagle Academy is a childcare program designed for children ages 3-5. The Graves County School District offers it to help families, as their young children develop school-readiness skills in a playful environment.
The program’s primary goal is to provide early learners and their families with knowledge, resources and materials to aid in kindergarten readiness. That’s according to early education consultant/community liaison Courtney Hayden. She says a closely-related goal is to encourage the educational and professional development of families to broaden each child’s base of support.
The program operates on a year-round basis and provides full-day, full-week childcare Monday-Friday between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Part-time childcare for current Graves County preschool students is available as a “wrap-around” program to assist working families. In addition, drop-in/emergency care services are offered, as space allows. Early Eagle Academy childcare sites are located at Farmington Elementary School and Graves County Middle School.
