Early Learning Programs

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."

- Mr. Rogers

Activities which are geared to appropriate stages of children's development enable them to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, creatively, physically, and cognitively.

Positive early learning experiences enhance the development of skills that will prepare children for later learning.

A nurturing environment assists children in their development of positive relationships and problem solving skills through daily interactions with peers and adults.

Parents are the first and most important teachers in a child's life and, as such, are valued partners in the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten experience. 
Coordinated community services meet the needs of young children and their families.
