Ages 4 weeks to 5 years
High quality early learning is provided in our blended classrooms for children who may not be eligible for Early Head Start or Head Start programs (tuition applies for families who are not eligible for subsidized childcare assistance programs - see rates here).
Experienced teaching teams implement a developmentally appropriate, child-led curriculum that supports school readiness by developing language, literacy, math, social-emotional, physical, and other skills necessary for successful learners. A safe and supportive learning environment promotes knowledge, interaction, and creativity through individual instruction and collaborative work with parents and families. Using an arts infused approach to learning, we enrich each day with movement, nature, art and music.
Our classrooms are trauma informed and inclusive for children of all abilities. We partner with early intervention and special education providers to support children with special needs. We can provide some intensive supports and individualized teaching for social emotional development. Educare is committed to success for every child. We do not ever suspend or expel children in our programs.
Meals include breakfast/lunch/snack. Menus follow federal and state guidelines and are reviewed by our nutritionist.
