The St. John’s Early Learning Center is a developmental preschool serving children between the ages of 2 and 5 years. Our program affirms the individuality of children and provides an emotionally safe environment in which they can learn and socialize. It is our belief that children grow and learn when they are free to observe, explore and actively engage in activities at their own developmental levels and pace.

Our program provides a warm and nurturing environment in which children can thrive. Each child is treated as an individual, respecting his or her needs, learning style and personality. Our rich thematic curriculum addresses the intellectual, emotional, social and physical needs of young children.

Since we acknowledge the importance of play, our day combines free-playtime, group activities and discussions to allow the children to practice the social readiness skills necessary to begin kindergarten with a positive self-image. We encourage children’s natural curiosity and foster a healthy respect for themselves, for others and for their surroundings.

Preschool classes include yoga, science and music enrichment as part of the curriculum. Our curriculum adheres to the educational standards established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). In addition to our exceptional equipment and sun-filled classrooms, ELC offers outdoor play each day that weather permits in a newly expanded playground, featuring a tricycle path.
