K-3 Early Intervention Program

The mission of the K-3 Early Intervention Program is to establish a collaborative partnership between schools and family service agencies to serve children and their families. This is accomplished through a variety of services which enable the children to achieve academic and social success.
What Is The K-3 Program?
In fulfilling Governor Carper's commitment to improve the school environment for children, the K-3 Program was developed. This innovative program is a collaborative effort between the Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families (DSCYF), Division of Family Services, the Department of Education (DOE), and participating public school districts. Participation in the program is for children attending kindergarten through third grade and their families. The K-3 Early Intervention Program addresses issues within the home that affect performance in the classroom. The goal is to enable families to support the social and academic growth and the healthy development of children so they may attain positive outcomes in school.

Services that are provided through the K-3 Early Intervention Program are:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Family Counseling
  • Play Therapy
  • Child/Parent Support Groups
  • Collaboration with the School and Outside Agencies
  • Social Skills Workshops for Children
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Discipline Alternatives
  • Location of Resources (as needed)
Who Is Eligible To Participate In The Program?
- The child must attend kindergarten through third grade in one of the participating schools.
- The child must be recommended by school personnel. Each school has a team of professionals who review recommendations.
- The K-3 Program can serve a limited number of children and their families. Priority for selection is given to children exhibiting the greatest need.
Who Are The Service Providers?
Family Crisis Therapists, who work for the Division of Family Services, are located in the schools to provide the services of the K-3 Program.
