Stafford Junction started the HUGS program in 2010 in partnership with the YMCA. We currently serve 9 children under 5 years of age in the Kindergarten Readiness program. This program makes sure that this group of high risk little ones are not behind when they start kindergarten. Studies show that this group of children are 45% lower in K-Readiness WITHOUT this kind of program.
HUGS offers activities to enhance children’s social, emotional and motor skill development in addition to starting them on the basic recognition of colors, numbers, letters plus much more.
Additionally, our partnership with the YMCA Massad Preschool allows the children to participate in structured preschool learning to further enhance their school readiness. We also offer Head Start and Early Head Start enrollment assistance.
Stafford Junction wants to thank the YMCA for their support in the partnership in this program.
If you would like to help sponsor a child for one year, it is only $25.00 per month! (about .82 cents per day *or* $300.00 per year)
