Kayla graduated from the 4 Kids Early Learning Center last spring. The thought of going to a new school, having new teachers and making new friends was a bit frightening. She told her mom that she was afraid that she wouldn't know any of the children in her new school. Fortunately, Kayla’s mom enrolled her in Heritage Out of School Program (HOST). As they walked into HOST, her mom was thrilled to see Kayla greeted by familiar friends and teachers from the 4 Kids Early Learning Center. Because Heritage focuses on continuum of services from cradle to work, children like Kayla have a safe, familiar place to learn and grow.
