The Center for Families celebrates the growth and learning of children and their parents. Best practices — in both the education of children as early learners and support of their families — guide this program as a model in our community.

  • We center educational practices on respecting and understanding the early learning needs of children.
  • We create opportunities for children to be eager learners, creative thinkers, confident problem solvers, and compassionate people.
  • Our excellent and engaged staff members develop activities and schedules based on children's ages, abilities, interests, and — within the context of culture of the children — their families and the community.
  • Our experienced and Early Childhood Education-educated teachers support your child's future success in school.

Your child's experiences will include:

  • learning activities that promote critical thinking, language, literacy, and math skills.
  • encouraging emotional and social development.
  • providing opportunities to use small and large muscles.
  • nutritional meals served family style.
  • daily outdoor exploration and vigorous play.
  • creative expression through music, storytelling and art.

Please share any questions or concerns. We have many resources available, including conferences, parenting classes, referrals, and individualized educational plans.
