Welcome to Kellom Elementary Early Childhood

Hello and welcome to Kellom Elementary. We are very fortunate to have a remarkable collaboration with the Learning Community of Douglas & Sarpy County. Our Early Childhood Partnership Program at Kellom Elementary provides research based practices and high quality instruction in each of our four classrooms.  Our children and families grow and develop with the support of our amazing early childhood team. 

Support for Children and Families 

We know families make a big difference in their child's education. That's why supporting families is important in our early childhood classrooms. We have a special education resource teacher, family support worker and family liaison to help children and families in time of need.
