The role of our teachers at Early Childhood Learning Center is to work as a team to help our students develop key life skills in a safe and healthy environment. Our teachers are responsible for providing the kind of guidance and atmosphere needed for successful learning of the program themes and goals.

Our teachers are dedicated to providing an environment that is warm and nurturing to meet the individual needs of the children. They are positive role models that provide a purposeful program for the students which will in turn help your child develop to his or her full capacity. Our teachers are trained to advance the physical and intellectual competence of each child while supporting their social and emotional development.
