CenClear’s accepting 2023-24 Preschool applicatio­ns


BIGLER — It’s time to plan for the 202324 school year. Applicatio­ns are now being accepted by CenClear for the upcoming year. CenClear offers preschool classes throughout Clearfield, Centre and Elk counties.

At CenClear, we focus on the entire child. In addition to learning through play, these children enjoy healthy meals or snacks while also learning about the importance of eating nutritious foods. We focus on their mental, physical, and cognitive health. We help them to develop social skills and independen­ce.

CenClear works closely with various school districts to ensure our preschool students are learning the skills they will need to move into kindergart­en and for life-long learning. CenClear offers full-day classes in the majority of our preschools. Half-day classes are offered in Coalport, Hyde and CPI.

In addition to preschool services, CenClear offers Early Head Start, Early Interventi­on and Family Centers. CenClear also offers Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Services to all ages.

CenClear was establishe­d in 1980 to provide Head Start services in Centre and Clearfield County and has worked closely with local school districts and communitie­s ever since to ensure that preschool is available to as many children as possible. CenClear realized all the issues children faced in preschool couldn’t be resolved in a classroom setting. At the time, there were limited options for young children in need of mental health services so CenClear began offering mental health services to all ages. Mental health issues sometimes lead to drugand alcohol issues so it began offering these services as well.
