The Basin (Idaho City) Early Learning Collaborative is a group of stakeholders in our community from the Basin School District in Idaho City who are working with families and county government leaders to prepare our children for Kindergarten.
Through early intervention with our program, we have seen an increase in reading and literacy scores in our school aged children. Over the last 20 years, children in our community who have participated in preschool were far more likely to be in dual college credit classes and pursue post secondary educational options.
Our goal is to ensure our children are prepared entering Kindergarten. We have seen firsthand how early learning and education can build a solid foundation for a child, setting them up with the tools they need for a prosperous future.
