Sure Start Program


Sure Start is a full-day preschool program that serves eligible military children and families living overseas. In addition to offering a high-quality educational program that reflects best practices in the field, Sure Start also provides health and nutrition, social and parent involvement services.

Close collaboration between families, schools and the installation community is viewed as essential and a required part of the program. This multipronged approach to the delivery of services distinguishes Sure Start from all other Department of Defense Education Activity, or DODEA, programs.
