At Early Learning Center our educational philosophy encourages a learning environment that stimulates and nurtures your child’s growth and development.
GOAL FOR CHILDREN
It is the goal of our center to provide:
A program that is individualized to meet the needs of every child.
An environment that is safe and orderly and contains varies and stimulating toys and materials.
The opportunity to select activities and materials that interest them, as children learn by being actively involved.
A language-rich environment.
Staff members who have specialized training in early childhood development and education.
Parents with the environment of respect, where they are encouraged to participate in their children’s educational experience.
It is necessary that all parents /guardians follow the requirements of signing in and out. This system will allow the school to have a more accurate count of the families using the center and will provide the parents with the maximum security for our children.
Authorization for someone other than the persons listed on your enrollment form to pick-up your child must be in writing and in advance to the center office. Identification (driver’s license or work ID with photo) will be required for anyone picking-up children other than parents, if not recognized by the staff.
As mandated reporters all observations or suspicions of child abuse or neglect will be immediately reported to the child protective service agency no matter where the abuse might have occurred.

Our Staff / Curriculum guidelines
Our Curriculum is age appropriate and is based on developmentally appropriate guidelines of the National Association of Young Children (NAEYC). Early Learning Center uses the High Scope Approach curriculum. The children learn by doing. The curriculum is both educational and fun for the children and includes 58 key experiences, a daily routine of active and passive play. The careful combination of all of the above help each child start their education in a positive, supportive, nurturing and truly fun environment which are based on the philosophy that children learn best by doing (Piaget) and hands-on approach including a balance of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities each day.
