Aram J Pothier Elementary School

Woonsocket, Rhode Island

The Woonsocket Education Department recognized that a partnership with Head Start would create more quality pre-k opportunities, enhance transition practices, provide on-site comprehensive services and better support and engage families in their town. As a result, the Education Department rearranged space at the Governor Aram J. Pothier Elementary School to enable the Woonsocket Head Start Child Development Association (WHSCDA) to occupy two rooms for pre-kindergarten programming.
