Supporting CCPS

CECLA

Chester Early Childhood Learning Academy

In August, the Chester Early Childhood Learning Academy (CECLA) opened its doors to serve local 3 and 4-year-olds based on their family's economic needs and environmental circumstances that may factor in a child's readiness for kindergarten. Currently, CECLA has 350 students and partners with the YMCA to provide free before and after school care to help with families' work schedules.

The goal for CECLA is to close the gap between low-income families and kindergarten readiness and ensure students are prepared for kindergarten and beyond!
