About Acelero Learning in Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin
Acelero Learning - Wisconsin offers free, full-day, full-year Early Head Start (ages 0-3) and Head Start (ages 3-5) services in Burlington, WI, and in Milwaukee and Racine Counties. In Milwaukee County, we serve over 800 children in Early Head Start and Head Start on the north side of Milwaukee and in the city of Cudahy. The service area in Milwaukee is bounded by Silver Spring, North Avenue, 76th Street, and the Milwaukee River. We also serve over 500 children in Early Head Start and Head Start in Racine County. Our service area in Racine includes three zip codes in the center of the city and on Racine’s east side--53402, 53403, and 53404. We also provide Head Start services in Burlington, WI.
At all of our centers, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality early childhood education to prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond. Children who attend for the full year--including our summer portion--are more prepared for school than those who do not. Attending in the summer guarantees your child a slot in the 2015 - 2016 school year. We also offer Extended Day services at various centers for before- and after-school care, geared towards working families.
Acelero Learning - Wisconsin also now offers full-day K4. K4 is a free, full-day program offered at our Capitol, Teutonia, and Eternal Learning centers in Milwaukee and all of our centers in Racine. Contact your nearest center for more information and to schedule an enrollment appointment.
At all of our centers, we focus on promoting family life practices that help close the Achievement Gap. We engage families at all levels individually, in groups, and as leaders in center-based campaigns. This strengthens family environments in order to maintain consistent daily routines, create experience-rich environments for children, promote language and literacy in the home, and utilize positive guidance and discipline.
Nutritious meals and snacks are also provided every day at all centers in a family-style dining setting. In addition, we support the completion of general health and wellness screenings and exams for all children served by our program. A wide range of social services are provided for interested families through our dedicated Family Advocates.
Acelero Learning - Wisconsin was established in 2013 in Milwaukee County and our centers in Racine County were added in 2014.
