Early Preschool

Our 2-3 year old program
Children may start once they turn 2 years old
  • Program Overview

  • Early Preschool

    The 2-3 year old program is designed to focus on the development of social skills as well as education fundamentals. Children at this age need a safe, supportive environment that nurtures their growing independence and self-assertiveness. Encouragement and praise are given daily while children are practicing and mastering new skills.

    Our curriculum is based on 4 basic developments that set the foundation for children to become life-long learners. Children are offered a blend of daily exploration activities as well as teacher led small group activities. Parents need not worry; we offer potty training in this classroom when children show interest and parents feel comfortable starting the process

    • Stephanie Collom
      Owner/Director

      My work with corporate preschools allowed me to focus on my dream of opening a preschool with a difference: a school that provides a family-like atmosphere and offers meaningful experiences in a nurturing environment for all children to learn, grow, and achieve in.

    • Jennifer McNair
      Food Specialist

      Having children myself, I have a passion to make nutritious foods for the children here at the center. I enjoy making new meals with a healthy twist that incorporate foods that the children may not typically eat at home.
      It is a true joy to see their smiles when I deliver their food in their classrooms and I look forward to making a difference in their healthy lifestyles here at the center.

    • Michelle Glenn
      Preschool, Early Preschool, Pre-K Teacher

      I truly believe the more kids use their hands the more they learn and have fun. My moto is the messier the task is the more fun it is.

      What I love about working at Educare is that everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated on preparing the kids for the future.
