Nurturing: An Essential Education Begins at an Early Age


Each day, teachers in our Early Learning Center Program create a balance between free choice activities in our centers and directed lessons and stories. Through play, children uncover their curiosity, explore their environment and experiment with problem solving. Independence and self help skills are encouraged in an atmosphere where each child is respected as an individual. We believe that an essential education begins at an early age; children in each level of our program develop the skills to become life-long learners.

All Saints’ Early Learning Center recognizes that parents and teachers are partners in promoting the growth and development of our students. We encourage ongoing communication between home and school regarding the changing needs and abilities of your children. We welcome parent participation in our classroom activities. 

Our Two Year Olds begin their journey of discovery and life learning with joy and enthusiasm.  The classroom encourages imaginative play, both alone and with others. The presence of two teachers enables close observation of the children’s growth, questions and readiness for the introduction of new concepts. Each day art, music, and movement offer opportunities for self-expression and the development of small and large motor skills.   Circle time activities, snack time and outdoor play promote relationships with classmates and teachers.  This important introduction to school life helps our youngest students learn how to communicate their needs, demonstrate their manners and thrive in a classroom setting. Two year olds may enroll for a two day (TTh), three day (MWF) or five day program.






Learning comes to life for our Three Year Olds in a dynamic and supportive environment. Directed learning experiences offer practice in focusing attention, following directions, and completing tasks independently. Daily activities with language, books, and listening help to foster a love of stories and reading. A multisensory, developmentally appropriate curriculum is used to promote the acquisition of skills essential for writing. Alphabet related activities provide familiarity with letters and sounds.  Mathematical concepts and skills are introduced by counting and using numbers in both play and real life situations. Art, music, and movement provide opportunities for self-expression daily. Spanish and PE classes are offered once a week. Three year olds may enroll for a three day (MWF) or five day program. 


Our Pre-Kindergarteners are eager to learn how to be ASES students.  The underlying goal of the program is to provide a rich, stimulating, and happy environment where children can explore, experiment, and create while gaining confidence in their abilities to be active and successful participants in the learning process. Emerging literacy is the center of the Pre-Kindergarten curriculum.  Reading, writing, expressive and receptive language, mathematics, science, art, music, and social studies are taught daily.  Spanish, P.E., chapel, and library experiences are part of the weekly schedule.  Teachers work with individual students, offer support as needed, and redirect behavior when necessary.  The Pre-Kindergarten students may enroll for a three day (MWF) or five day program. Five day enrollment better insures Kindergarten readiness.
