The Mission of the Early Learning Center
The Early Learning Center Program
Our Early Learning Center programs focus on the social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual development of the child through age-appropriate activities within an exciting learning environment. We foster academic learning through conceptual themes and activities and encourage peer interactions through our daily schedule.
The ELC also focuses on building community and a sense of belonging by having students participate in activities such as The Blessing of The Animals, May Day presentations, the Christmas program and the school-wide and monthly Mass gatherings.
The After School Program is an extension of the school day where students focus on learning through play within the structure of a school environment. It is available on a monthly basis ($150/mo) or on an hourly space available basis ($7.50/hr). A 24 hour request for child care is required for hourly care due to limited space. The After School Care program is open until 5:30p.m. everyday. See Extended Care Program
After School Enrichment Classes include:
- Prime Time for Kids (Music and Movement)
- Kidz Art
- Foreign Language Instruction
- Amazing Athletes
Class information and registration forms can be found at Extra-Curricular Programs. (See Extra-curricular Programs)
Safe and Caring Schools
The Early Learning Center also participates in the Safe and Caring Schools program. Safe and Caring Schools is a school-wide character education program that focuses on building a community of family and respectful learners. The monthly Safe and Caring theme is incorporated into the Early Learning curriculum as well.
Faculty and Staff
Our highly qualified staff is dedicated to providing a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment that focuses on the development of the “whole child.” All teachers have a specialized degree in the field and are willing partners with parents in the care and education of young children. see faculty page
