Program/Curriculum

While parents attend school, their children are being cared for in a licensed and accredited center by a professional team of early childhood educators. A primary goal of CHSFS is to provide age-appropriate learning and school-readiness skills to the children we serve. Learning takes place in a child focused environment where exceptional staff-to-child ratios help to ensure quality care.

Now called the Early Learning Center, the Center provides care that enhances the emotional, social, physical and intellectual development of each child and strives to help each child gain confidence and self-esteem while learning to function in a group. We believe that children learn through their play situations as well as through a structured environment.

The Center consists of three large rooms, as well as an outdoor, fenced play area for children. The staff are hired by CHSFS. Children receive breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. Parents are welcome to visit the center at any time and observe and/or participate in room activities.
