    Tiger Paw Early Childhood Center, located in the brick building next to the Ozark School District Office on Fourth Avenue, is home to Ozark’s youngest learners. Walking through the doors, you would never know the building houses five different programs, each interwoven to create the Early Childhood Center. The structure of integrating multiple programs is vitally important for early childhood.

    “We ensure that we meet each student at their level of need and development by weaving multiple programs together,” Tiger Paw Early Childhood Center Director Laura Eakins said. “This integrated structure provides students every opportunity to reach the common goal of being ready for kindergarten.”
