Welcome to The Garfield Early Childhood Learning Center

Welcome to The Early Childhood Learning Center! Our preschool program is designed to provide a learning environment that focuses on fostering the development of children's social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills in a developmentally appropriate manner. Our learning materials and teaching styles are responsive to the ages and individual differences of children and are respectful of children's cultural and ethnic heritage. 
Our small class size and the experience and education of the staff make our program "special". All the teachers are certified, experienced and highly competent. Together with our warm, loving and nurturing teacher assistants, we can ensure that the program we offer has the highest possible criteria of excellence in early childhood education. 

       At this time we are utilizing Remote Learning. Below are some websites, a daily schedule and activities that you can do at home with your child. Teachers will be updating their websites on a daily basis. Ensure that you are also checking your email as teachers will be sending updates and educational activities through email. If teachers are experiencing technical difficulties with their website, they will email you with their daily activities and messages.
