Our classrooms are a place where your child can thrive and learn through activities that engage their interest in math, literacy, science, arts activities and dramatic play. Children learn when activities focus on their interests. That is why our curriculum is driven by your child’s needs. Skilled, experienced teachers make every day a day of fun and learning that builds academic knowledge, social skills, and decision making skills that help them grow and develop.
We do things that research says work best for early learners. We use High Scope, an evidence-based curriculum centered on the individual strengths and interests of your child. Kids learn more both academically and socially.
According to the Texas Education Agency, children who attend a quality pre-k program are better prepared for kindergarten, have better reading and writing skills, and have better social skills, behavior and conduct in and out of the classroom. At the Early Learning Center, we are committed to being that quality place for your children.
We want to impact the lives of preschool children during one of the most crucial times in their lives by providing an exceptional learning environment and ongoing parental support.
