PIRS provides childcare for the young children of women attending all our programs. We offer a warm and friendly place for children to learn English and make new friends.


The goals of the ECE Programs are:

  • To introduce children to what is often their first group experience in a supportive and culturally appropriate environment
  •  To help children feel comfortable being away from their parents and in the care of adults from outside the immediate family
  • To promote children’s sense of self esteem and their pride in their cultural heritage
  • To encourage children to learn how to make choices and to share and cooperate with other children
  • To provide children with opportunities to develop and thrive in the following areas: Social/Emotional, Cognitive, Physical, Language and Spiritual Development
  • To prepare pre-schoolers for successful entry into kindergarten
