Personalized Learning Starts Here
The Early Childhood Center and Hackett Infant & Toddler Center know how important and how very different each stage of your child's development is. That's why we created six unique classrooms that tailor to the specific learning needs and growth opportunities for children in these varying phases. We believe each child's education needs to be personalized rather than simply conformed to the masses.
"The Early Childhood Center provides an engaging yet nurturing experience for children at every level. Over the last two years I have enjoyed watching my son blossom from an observant infant to a curious and friendly toddler under the care of the Early Childhood Center. He looks forward to going to school each morning, and as a working mom, that is exactly what I had hoped for in choosing a child care provider." - Meredith T.
First steps, new words, exciting challenges - being a toddler is a wonderful thing! Children ages 15 to 30 months old learn all about problem solving, socializing and decision making in this program.
Our kindergarten preparation class, for four to five year olds, concentrates on the specific skills needed to start kindergarten. From math to reading with phonics, your child will be ready to start the next phase of their educational journey.
the ecc for parents
Wondering how your role as a parent fits into your child's ECC experience? The ECC believes that the partnership between parents and the Center should be a strong one. This is why we have an open door policy, which enables you, as parents and family members, to come visit anytime so you can see how your children spend their day.
The ECC also invites parents to come and share lesson plans or a family or ethnic tradition with the entire Center. The ECC has occasional Saturday field trips so the entire family can attend.
You can also join our Parent Group. This group meets quarterly to talk through their hopes and desires for the program and also plan fundraising events, parties and field trips.
