It is the hope of Education Services that all children will enter school with the foundation needed for academic and social success. Through our resources, educators have the opportunities to receive high-quality, online professional development to promote technology in PreK, K-12 and Adult Education classrooms. In addition, our collaborative efforts with schools and communities have proven to promote and support high-quality programs and services for children and their families.
