The P-3 Continuum is a system to provide articulated family supports and early foundational language, literacy and numeracy supports to children starting before they are born and continuing into the early elementary grades. The P-3 Continuum places equal emphasis on the development of social/emotional skills and academic competencies. We have found that many of the students coming into kindergarten with an achievement gap lacked the socialization skills necessary to apply themselves academically. Additionally, a central focus of the continuum is to coordinate strategically with a variety of health and human community services that many students simply do not access until they start kindergarten. We call these wrap-around services because, if provided in a timely manner, they wrap around the student as their brain and body are forming.
