    I worked at Howard Area Community Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great preschool program with dedicated and well-trained staff. In better weather children play outside (in the private play lot) or take a walk to the lake! (they also have an indoor gross motor room)
    They have adopted some montessori approaches. Look up: Reggio Emelia

    Cons

    Could help interns get to know more about the other community services and programs they offer besides headstart/preschool.

    Pros

    Great staff at the daycare. Daycare director is amazing and very caring, trickles down to the rest of the staff.

    Cons

    No cons outside of the need for more funding, which is out of their control.
