What We Do

Early Childhood Learning Center

As a nationally accredited preschool with a therapeutic approach, The Village’s Early Childhood Learning Center helps children ages 3-5 acquire the skills necessary to prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.

The center provides a nurturing, open and safe educational environment that helps to promote learning, intellectual curiosity, creativity, independence, social skills, and physical development.

The professional staff is trained to provide creative and clinical interventions to support children with behavioral and/or emotional issues. Wraparound supports, assessments and individualized instruction allow children to thrive while they are in preschool and will provide a strong foundation for their formal K-12 education.

The center also supports families in their understanding of the requirements for their children to transition to Kindergarten. The center reinforces the importance and positive effects of parents’ involvement in the educational experience of their children. This may include connecting them with the services they need to be successful.

The center meets the gold standard of accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children or NAEYC.
