Currently, the Department of Education is focusing on reforming the curriculum taught in schools and President Obama is becoming increasingly concerned with learning at a lower grade level. Studies and documentations show that what a child learns when they are younger helps them develop as they increase in age. The department is therefore focusing on advancing "the health, social, emotional, and educational outcomes for young children from birth through 3rd grade y enhancing the quality of early learning programs and increasing the access to high quality early learning programs especially for young children at risk for school failure."
To help with a prime concern in the United States, DEPCO, LLC is dedicated to improving children's literacy in unique ways including Secret Codes and The Block Academy, which are both specially developed curriculums for Kindergarten and Pre-School aged children. These programs help to initiate science, music, arts and crafts, math, physical activity, and character development in the younger generation. DEPCO is passionate about education and their enthusiasm is projected through their projects. This company maintains an innovative, student-driven focus using important concepts such as sensory integration, phonemic and print awareness and much more. Learning retention is maximized through incorporating hands-on activities that are not only educational, but enjoyable.
