Project Help is an inclusive preschool for young children. Children who have developmental delays learn and play with those who are developing typically. The programs engage children in a variety of fun and exciting educational experiences. Because Project Help is a part of both MTSU and Rutherford County community, linkages and relationships are strong due to the involvement of professional educators providing hands-on outreach to families.

Programming and educational activities are based on the Tennessee Early Childhood Education Early Learning Developmental Standards. The staff of Project Help strives to ensure that all of those involved have meaningful and enjoyable learning opportunities.

Prep


Prep PicLearn More

The period prior to kindergarten is an essential part of every child's learning experience. Project Help Prep offers a fantastic supplement to Head Start for children with IEPs. For children who are developing typically, Prep provides a classroom focused on the skills needed to excel in kindergarten.


Prep is available to all children including: those with IEPs, those who had IFSP but are not eligible for IEPs, and those who are developing typically or above.

All children are evaluated using the Developmental Assessment for Children (DAYC). This diagnostic tool allows our teachers to ascertain each child's strengths and needs. With this information lesson plans and activities can be tailored to provide an individualized curriculum.
