Following long standing practices in Early Childhood Education, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and Association for Early Learning Leaders, the ELC utilizes play to engage children in meaningful and constructive ways in the development of the whole child and a lifelong love of school and learning.
The ELC Curriculum emphasizes differentiation to the individual child and group as children work on foundational skills and conceptual building blocks of learning in each of five developmental areas, social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual, in order to have a lifelong love of learning and also prepare for the challenges of education from kindergarten onward.
To nurture each child individually to develop to their fullest potential
To promote positive self-esteem
To provide social opportunities
To provide opportunities for meaningful play that are based on the child’s individual needs, interests and abilities
To build important foundations for future success in all areas
To provide a Christian, loving environment where each child knows that they are specially made and loved by God
To be a resource in the areas of child development and appropriate parenting methods
