Our program features a thematic approach to learning and offers a variety of intriguing activities to stimulate early development.
This program fosters social and emotional growth as well as large and small motor skills. Children realize personal interests at their own pace while developing language skills, writing, number, letter recognition, and their imagination.
Experiences will be provided that meets the children’s needs and stimulate learning in all development areas. Weekly lesson plans are available so parents may see how these areas are covered. To incorporate gross motor activities, the EEC has accessibility to three gyms, courts, gymnastics center, playground, outdoor trail, and swimming pools are all part of the curriculum we offer.
