Early Childhood Center Summer Camp has openings! 

Summer Camp for 3-5 year olds is just the place to get a head start on the school year. With cozy, smile-filled adventures and a little sneak peek into their soon-to-be preschool life, it’s the perfect way to get them started. 

Our fully licensed Early Childhood Center is a safe and nurturing environment where children ages 2.5 to 5 years old grow, develop and thrive. Our Early Childhood program:

  • Promotes social, emotional, intellectual and physical development
  • Provides an engaging, play based, hands-on approach for children to become not only independent learners, but critical thinkers
  • Creates opportunities for peer interaction, one on one conversations, exploration and discovery, and self confidence building

Program activities include instructional gym, music & movement, storytime, arts & crafts and events for our families. The latter activities are an addition to appropriate curriculum furnished through the DOE for 3-K and Pre-K.
