Early Childhood

Hawaii Education Advocates works with families to improve access to quality early childhood education for children (ages 0–5).  We want your student to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.

These formative years have a profound impact on a child’s life and education. Studies show that children who participate in high-quality preschool programs are dramatically less likely to be retained a grade in school, be placed in special education classes, drop out of high school, or depend on public benefits.  Hawaii Education Advocates helps parents with young children access these vital services at the time when they can have the greatest impact. 

We will work with you to:

  • Obtain appropriate evaluations for your child
  • Present your case to the school
  • Advocate for the appropriate services and placement for your child
  • Determine the best preschool placement for your child
