Family and community are two very important cornerstones of Texas living, and in the Stephenville area that is no exception.
According to a recent piece from the Stephenville Empire Tribune, the child development center in Tarleton is currently accepting child care subsidy from the state. This initiative will ideally lead to low-income families getting their child care paid for by the state government.
“We are excited to be able to accept the subsidy,” Dr. Kimberlee Spencer, director of the Tarleton Child Development Center, told the news source. “It will provide students with affordable care so they can enroll in classes and finish their degree. We look forward to supporting students in their educational efforts and Stephenville families in their work and educational goals.”
How much assistance can a family receive to send their child to the city’s development center? That will all depend on the family’s income.
There’s been a renewed focus on child care, development and education in the Lone Star state as the center and others like it have adopted a Texas Education Agency curriculum known as Creative Curriculum, the news source stated. This curriculum focuses on observing individual children and identifying areas of need in order to better prepare them for their academic careers.
Education opportunities are crucial, not just in Texas but across the country. And giving each individual child the attention and care they deserve is essential to fostering growth and quality of life in the community.
This latest news on the state helping out families in need is just one of many examples of the importance placed on education and family in the Stephenville area, making it one of the most sought after communities to live in Texas.
