EXCEL by 5

Excel By 5 is an innovative early childhood community certification process focusing on a community’s young children. It emphasizes the important roles parents, early childhood educators and the community play in the lives of children during their most formative years – birth to age 5.  The certification identifies standards in the following four areas:

  • Early Childhood Education
  • Health
  • Parental Involvement
  • Community Involvement

In 2008, Mid-Jackson fulfilled the requirements outlined by the state EXCEL by 5 office and was named the “first certified neighborhood” in the state of Mississippi.
