The Early Learning Center's Kindergarten program is designed to respond to individual needs by offering children exciting and challenging learning experiences through hands-on, emergent curriculum in a play-based environment. However, given the challenges of a kindergarten curriculum we slowly begin the transition to a more traditional school environment. Our small class size allows us to work individually with each child at their own pace on specific skills they need to be successful. As the year progress, we begin adding on more skills and expectations.
