Description: Our Early Education centers provide a child-centered emergent curriculum with a focus on learning through play and exploration. The curriculum encompasses activities that support the child's growth in the following domains: social, emotional, physical and intellectual. The staff of the centers is here to support parents in your role as your child's first and primary teacher.

ELIGIBILITY: The Infant Center serves children ages two weeks to two years. The Early Childhood Education Center (Toddler & Preschool) serves children age two years to entering first grade. Our services are offered to the community as well as eligible low-income families who are either working or enrolled in training programs, High School or College. We also provide childcare services for children through Child Protective Services (CPS). Limited spaces are also available at our centers for full fee paying families.
