The Hagios Early Learning Center is a Christian preschool that exists to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate environment for preschool students. Our focus is to provide our students with a stimulating early learning environment that promotes each child’s social/emotional, physical and cognitive development, as well as an early learning curriculum with a strong emphasis on reading readiness. Our goal is to support children’s desire to be life-long learners. The program is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children and to provide experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the center’s daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through first-hand experiences. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self- and teacher-facilitated activities. Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided. Our staff consists of skilled teachers who hold state and national and state credentials in early childhood education, who serve as positive role models and to provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s individual needs. The adult’s responsibility in a developmental program is to assist the child in growing to his or her fullest potential by recognizing each stage of development and fashioning a curriculum that will nurture and facilitate growth during that stage. We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in their child's care and education.
