History

‚ÄčWelcome to our school… The Madison Early Childhood Center, a cooperative effort between the Boise School District’s Early Childhood Special Education Program and Friends of Children and Families Inc. Head Start & Early Head Start opened in the fall of 2004. Collaboration between the Boise School District and Head Start programs will help ensure that all children have the services they need to be successful in school.

Early Childhood Special Education classrooms in our school provide services to developmentally disabled children between the ages of 3 to 5 and support to their families. Our goal is to better prepare our students for school and reduce the need for special education services once they begin kindergarten or first grade. For enrollment information contact a Boise School District staff member at Madison (208) 854-5520.

Friends of Children and Families Inc. Early Head Start & Head Start is a local nonprofit organization providing Head Start and Early Head Start service in Ada and Elmore Counties.
