DALLAS - Dallas ISD plans to expand its pre-kindergarten program to include babies and toddlers.
The initiative, called Start Strong Dallas, is in its early stages.
The school district said most of a child’s brain develops before they turn 5 years old, and many children already have learning gaps by the time they arrive in Dallas ISD’s pre-K program.
That includes development of language and social skills.
Dallas ISD also hopes to develop training for parents.
There’s no timeline for the Start Strong Dallas program to begin.
