At Premier Early Learning Center, your child will build a solid social and educational foundation — with all the fun of being a child mixed in! We are more than a daycare. Our childcare and early education programs focus on school readiness, social and emotional development, literacy, problem solving and other necessary life skills.
We believe the best way to help infants grow into curious and confident life learners is to provide a warm, nurturing, safe and secure environment. Our infant classroom is equipped with age appropriate materials and furniture to enable our infants to explore their surroundings safely, discover new experiences and grow confidently.
Our infants will utilize indoor playground or take an outdoor stroll in one of our buggies!Premier Early Learning Center maintains lower teacher/child ratios than state licensing standards require, which allow our infants to receive more individualized care. The meal time and napping schedules will remain consistent with each individual infant’s routine and will be adapted as needed.
Our teachers will work with infants on basic sign language to assist infants in communicating their needs. Parents will be provided with a daily report regarding their child’s day.Infant day is packed with activities that focus on six main development areas:
PELC's toddler rooms were developed so that the children are able to move around safely and freely whether to play with blocks, push a toy, ride a tricycle or play on the climber. Teachers engage the children with stories, book reads and silly songs to help their language, imagination and creativity grow!
Everyday children will be exposed to music and literacy which support rich vocabulary development! Teachers will continue to work with children on basic sign language skills. This will assist nonverbal children to communicate with teachers and other children to convey their needs.
The activities and socialization that occurs throughout the day will help children build and strengthen their cognitive skills, language skills, self-esteem and develop confidence.Toddler day is packed with activities that focus on six main development areas:
Premier Early Learning Center provides a warm, nurturing, and happy environment for your three year-old to learn and practice important early academic skills. The classroom is divided into 7 center areas that allow children to learn through hands on interaction and opportunity to manipulate learning materials.
The daily schedule for Preschool allows for Circle Time (whole group), small group and center time. Teachers use intentional teaching approaches to encourage children to ask questions, experiment with new materials, solve problems, and learn social skills.
The children are exposed to kinder readiness skills such as phonological awareness, letter knowledge, math, written expression and language development through a variety of activities such as identifying syllables in their name, distinguishing how many words in a sentence or that we write from left to right.
Preschool (3 years) day is packed with activities that focus on six main development areas:
Our Preschool teacher and Pre K teacher work closely together to better serve the needs of your children. In our Preschool, children are exposed to many kinder readiness concepts. Transitioning into Pre K, the children come with background knowledge of these concepts which include print concepts, phonological awareness, letter knowledge, mathematic concepts and book print knowledge. The Pre K 4-5 teacher will build on these experiences from Preschool.
The teachers provide a variety of experiences that foster the children’s ability to attend to and participate in group discussions, follow multi-step directions, and follow through with classroom routines and responsibilities. The children are part of a caring classroom community where they are able to freely and confidently explore, discover and grow!
PELC provides children the confidence and experiences necessary to enable a seamless and successful transition to kindergarten.
Preschool (4-5 years) day is packed with activities that focus on six main development areas:
Each classroom is divided into 7 learning centers that are equipped with age-appropriate materials, art supplies, writing materials, books and other play materials that promote language, literacy and math development. As children select learning centers and play, they are practicing taking care of their classroom and toys while learning how to cooperate and share with other children. The children will be introduced to a center management system which will allow them to manage themselves. Children may move from one center to another center using their individual nametag after they have cleaned up their toys. Children are also learning about patience and handling their emotions too!
During daily center time, each child has the opportunity to choose a center, communicate their choice to the teacher and play in selected area. As they play, children are using what they have learned and implementing it whether it be using new vocabulary words or sorting by small, medium and large. During center time as the children are engaged in centers, the teacher will work with a 1-2 small groups of children to elaborate on a concept or skill. During daily Circle Time, the teacher will plan for structured whole group activities to include book reads, writing activities, reviewing concepts, introducing curriculum topic, introducing and reviewing new vocabulary, practice counting, identifying and describing shapes and patterns.
