“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning, but for children, play is serious learning.” 
-Mr. Rogers

The mission of the Early Childhood Department is to use research based practices to instill in young children the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values necessary to achieve academically by creating positive and engaging environments which provide meaningful, developmentally appropriate learning opportunities and promote independence and problem-solving.
