What is the curriculum that you are using?

The curriculum for preschool is a based on the Approaches To Learning Curriculum for preschooler success. It is fully aligned with the early learning framework and state early learning standards.

Using exploration and discovery as a way of learning, The curriculum for preschool enables children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills.

The curriculum for preschool is based on five fundamental principles.

  1. Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide a critical foundation for successful learning.
  2. Social–emotional competence is a significant factor in school success.
  3. Constructive, purposeful play supports essential learning.
  4. The physical environment affects the type and quality of learning interactions.
  5. Teacher–family partnerships promote development and learning

Will my child get individualized attention?

Every parent wants his/her child to succeed in school. The staff at Ascension Christian Early Learning Center will work individually with your child as much as possible to support age appropriate learning.

Do you have an open-door policy?

Parents of currently enrolled children are always welcome to visit their child at the center. If a child is having transition issues, teachers work with parents to plan visiting times that will enhance the transition rather than impede it. Parents of children who are interested in enrolling may schedule a time to tour. Parents of newly enrolled children may visit their child’s program with the child prior to the start date; this will also be scheduled with the ELC Director.
