Early Childhood Education

Nationally and statewide, children in low-income families are at-risk for poor educational outcomes. This poor educational outcome holds true for youth in East Tampa. According to the 2018-2019 survey from the Florida Department of Education, a significantly greater number of African American and Hispanic children in Hillsborough County were not promoted to the next grade.

Dr. Traci’s House will house a robust early childhood development program in our daycare and childcare center. We will collaborate with the state run Voluntary Pre-K program and Healthy start program. Dr. Traci’s House will connect with local Title I elementary schools to lend support with donated educational materials, tutors and our time. Dr. Traci’s House offers childcare services as part of its comprehensive early childhood development program and with anticipated donations can provide free and reduced rates for attendees. We collaborate with other local community organizations that offer parenting classes. Our Dr. Traci’s House navigators assist parents of young children at doctor’s visits and daycare drop-offs of the available services with warm transfer to local social and medical services. We plan to partner with the local school district to provide educational support for those children on-site, e-learning, or virtual school settings.
