Success Stories


“They all were very respectful, polite. Made sure you felt comfortable and safe knowing they are here to help and listen. Under the circumstances you felt relieved to be there.”

“My daughter was attending Excel 9 when one of the employees told me about the Early Head Start program. I was so excited when she had mentioned it to me. At the time, I was pregnant with my now youngest and was excited to put both my children into the program to receive the many benefits the program had to offer. Being a single mom and a full-time student, I needed this program more than anything. Partnering with the Early Head Start Program, I have been able to drop my children off and know they are receiving high-quality early childhood education while I finished my Associate’s Degree.”

“My daughter loved preschool…Sending her to school for the first time was very difficult, but (the teachers) made it easier on my family. Every morning they welcomed her with open arms and smiling faces. Not only did they teach her educational material, but also many social skills. I was able to witness so much growth from my daughter over the year she was in preschool. I could never thank (the teachers) enough for what they did for my baby. I am so happy that we chose to send my daughter to NC-Pre-K!”

“I learned more ways in recognizing childhood trauma and how to manage classroom rules, daily schedules, and our environment to be a nurturing and effective learning space for our children. I also received some great ideas from other teachers in how they are going to implement routines and how they will be engaging families this year.”
