Early Childhood Education provides children with the critical foundational skills, strategies, and experiences that promote success in school and beyond.
Research shows that students who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs:
Engage in more complex activities with peers and materials
Enter kindergarten with necessary skills for school tasks
Show greater knowledge of numerical concepts
Are less often retained or placed in special education classes
Our programs are based on the belief that in an effective Early Childhood Program:
Children learn best in an atmosphere that fosters self-esteem and confidence.
Teacher planned and child centered activities designed around language ability, skills and interest levels that integrate social-emotional, cognitive, physical abilities, healthy well being, and home and school.
A partnership should be established between our programs, home and community to link the child’s early educational experiences.
Each child’s cultural heritage and language is respected and fostered to enhance the child’s self-esteem.
