Schedules for infants cannot be planned as they are for the older age groups. Routines must be developed for the convenience of the infants and not the staff. Infants must be on a flexible, personal schedule that provides rest, eating and play. The schedule should also include periods of time outdoors when the weather permits (Unless the temperature is 20 o F or below or 95 o F or above). The schedules must change as the infant develops. The staff must be prepared to adapt to the changing needs of the developing infant such as need for less sleep, more playtime, and a different feeding schedule. Program guidelines are posted in respective rooms.
Pre-School/Pre Kindergarten Program demonstrate ways to promote cognitive skills, language skills, and communications skills while encouraging physical growth and building self-esteem.
The program is designed to encourage children to be actively involved in the learning process to experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and to pursue their own interests in the context of life in the world. Adults who understand child development and who recognize and provide for the child's needs staff the program.
After School sessions are conducted Monday through Friday from 3:30PM to 5:30PM with transportation to area schools in the Hughes Place location.
The Early Childhood Learning Centers’ Summer Camp Program provides children with a safe place with structured fun activities to try new skills and interests, to build friendships, and to find accepted places in the group.
ECLC provides transportation for the before school, after school, and before and after school programs. The routes are initiated from the center or the schools and are terminated at the center or the schools. We do not pick children up at their homes. The routes are chosen to cover the schools in the vicinity of our center.
