The Commons’ 4-year-old program is a collaborative effort between the United Methodist Health Care Center, Enid Public Schools and CDSA/Smart Start Northwest Oklahoma. The project is fully funded by Enid Public Schools and an Innovative Project Grant through Smart Start Oklahoma from the Inasmuch Foundation. The grant provides a professional teacher and assistant for a regular, daily classroom experience for Pre-kindergartners through Enid Public Schools.
This program benefits both children and The Commons residents alike. The program integrates reading activities, music and student activities with “grandmas and grandpas” and provides a unique atmosphere for learning, caring and cooperation.
