Excel By 5 to begin orientation sessions

A new school year has arrived, and Excel by 5 also is ready to begin its year for pre-schoolers.

Before preschoolers can attend the many Biloxi Excel By 5 programs, parents and caregivers are required to attend one of the upcoming orientations.

Biloxi Excel By 5 is an early learning community-based program designed to improve a child’s overall well-being by age five.

Orientations will take place each month from August through April at various times at the Biloxi Family Resource Center, 140 St. John Ave. Sessions begin this week, on Wednesday at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., and Thursday at 9:30 and 10:45 a.m.

Says Suan Hunt, manager of Biloxi Excel by 5: “These orientations are important for participants so that they receive an explanation of the programs, policies, and benefits provided for parents, grandparents and children.”
