The Children's Education & Learning Center

The Children’s Education and Learning Center combines the “Creative Curriculum” with the Pennsylvania Standards for Early Learning to provide a unique learning experience for every child. The curriculum is individualized for each grade level, beginning with our Infant and continuing through our Toddler, Pre-School and Kindergarten programs. Our curriculum incorporates a broad range of creative, hands-on and enrichment opportunities to help our students develop the skills that establish a solid foundation for learning. Each grade focuses the cognitive, social, emotional and physical development of our students. Art, music, computer and physical education are incorporated into our daily schedules. Recognizing the importance of educating “The Whole Child”, we strive to help our students develop a positive and strong sense of self. A child who is taught self-respect and self-worth will ultimately learn to respect others and the world around them.
