Coleman Center

Coleman Hall Construction Progress June 2019

Coleman Center for Early Learning and Family Enrichment has many exciting happenings at this time. The new construction for Coleman Hall-Dothan Campus is on schedule which means we continue to plan toward an opening date of August 20, 2019. Currently, enrollment is going well and every day families are enrolling their children into our future early learning programs. In addition, we have just been notified that the Coleman Center has been awarded three (3) First Class Pre-K grants. These grants will allow us to support our surrounding communities by providing a quality pre-k early childhood education for their four-year-old children. Each classroom will have a certified early childhood education teacher and an auxiliary teacher. The grant will also fund all needs within the classroom to include curriculum, instructional materials, professional development, furniture, etc. We look forward to establishing a very strong partnership with Alabama State Department of Early Childhood Education and the Office of School Readiness due to their supporting us with these grants. Our Director for Coleman Center, Nancy Mitta, as well as designated Department of Teacher Education faculty who serve on the Coleman Center Team will begin interviewing potential candidates for teaching and staff positions beginning this month. If you know of anyone who might be interested in a position within the center, please have them contact Nancy Mitta at at their earliest convenience.
