The Program


Mission Statement


The EPLC Preschool Program provides a safe, developmentally appropriate, nurturing environment that promotes social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth, as well as a positive self-image and a love of learning.


Philosophy


EPLC Preschool has a comprehensive approach to educating and enriching the whole child. Our preschool curriculum is play based because play is the most appropriate mode for a young child’s learning. Our experienced and highly qualified teachers enable each child to reach his or her highest potential by supporting children wherever they are on their own learning path and timeline. Our low child-to-teacher ratios and small class size enables our teachers to:

  • Spend quality teaching time with each child;
  • Develop close child-teacher bonds of affection, trust and respect;
  • Assess each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth and work to achieve the best learning outcomes for each child;
  • Work with children in small groups.

Our goal is to build skills that set children up for success in kindergarten and beyond.
