Our Early Learning Center offers a warm, creative environment for children 15 months through 5 years of age and is licensed for up to 25 children. We encourage children to actively participate in the world around them while supporting freedom of expression through exploration, examination and communication. Our center values the richness of language and cultural diversity.
Our teachers act as a facilitator in the growth and development of the children; therefore, projects are children originated and teacher framed. We believe that a child learns best in a rich learning environment with many opportunities to interact with other children and adults, explore learning materials, and express themselves creatively through art and music experiences. The environment is arranged in learning centers that are planned with the current interests of the children to help them acquire educational skills like counting, sorting, classifying and early literacy. As well, children are encouraged to dialogue, critique, compare, negotiate, hypothesize, and problem solve through group work which promotes both a sense of group membership and the uniqueness of self.
