District 196 Early Learning Philosophy
The goal of early learning is to nurture the development of children to be inquisitive, eager to learn, creative, confident, compassionate and self-initiating. Early learning should support cooperative learning, socialization, healthy self-esteem, and creativity while maximizing the growth of problem-solving, decision-making and early literacy and math skills.
Our programming consists of teacher-facilitated, hands-on activities that address the individual children's needs and interests. Children assume increasing personal responsibility and independence as they grow and develop.
Essential connections between home, school, and the community are acknowledged and strengthened through early learning programming. Families and teachers work cooperatively to encourage and support children on their unique journey of lifelong learning.
Classes are Monday-Friday from AM CLASS 9:10-11:55am and PM CLASS 1:10-3:55pm
