We are in the process of becoming an Excel By 5 certified early childhood community. A team of educators, community leaders, and parents are working together to help make Duncan an even more nurturing, safer environment for our children.
The Duncan Excel By 5 community coalition has been working with the Duncan Community Health Council on several community projects to improve the built environment. The Excel by 5 Coalition conducted their community needs assessment and has shared the findings with the community. The coalition has drafted several action steps to guide them through the certification process.
