Can anyone help out Yuri with information on the Sure Start program?
My name is Yuri and I’m a single active duty AF mom with a soon-to-be 4 year old daughter. I’ll be PCS’ing to Kadena in August and I found your site as I googled for information about Okinawa. It’s been a wonderful source of information and I find myself on the site every night! As I was reading through the previous posts on pre-schools and schools, I found that no one had mentioned anything about the Sure Start program (Pre-K) offered at some of the elementary schools on base. I think I may qualify for the program because I’m a single parent. I’ve looked on the DoD Pacific sites but the information it offers really doesn’t give me a “real” feel of the program. Could you see if any of your other readers may have a child enrolled in the program and if so, could they provide me some insight?
