    Early Childhood Matters…Learning Begins at Birth

    Papillion La Vista Community Schools (PLCS) believes the foundation for a successful educational career begins in early childhood. During the first 3 years of life, the brain undergoes its most dramatic development as children acquire the ability to think, speak, learn, and reason. In fact, about 90% of a child’s core brain structure forms in the first 5 years of life—long before they enter Kindergarten.

    PLCS capitalizes on this critical developmental period by investing in quality early childhood experiences and resources for children, families, and professionals in our community. The resources included on this site are intended to provide information about early childhood programs and services in PLCS, as well as connect parents, community childcare and preschool providers, and other professionals to resources in our community.
