E Street's Early Learning Center is dedicated to offering young children developmentally appropriate early childhood experiences. We also provide learning programs for school-age children through afterschool and summer programs. Our aim is to create a collaborative and educational environment that supports families in their journey. In fulfilling our mission, we will also provide families with more availability of affordable childcare options, increasing participation in our local workforce/economy and improving various aspects of family life.
The new E Street Early Learning Center opening in Fall of 2024 will meet the developmental needs of young children ages 3 through 5. The Center provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the program's daily schedule, each child can create, explore, learn problem-solving techniques, develop personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through firsthand experiences. Children are not expected to perform beyond their abilities or to meet a set of standards based on "speeding up" learning or "hurrying" skill acquisition. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self- and teacher-directed activities. Staff members serve as positive role models and provide care and education that is supportive, nurturing, warm, and responsive to each child's individual needs. We respect families as the primary and most important care and education providers and look forward to partnering together in the educational process.
