Toddlers are little busybodies. At Village Early Learning Center, that’s okay. We balance individual attention with group activities and ensure that your toddler is using all that energy in productive ways. From trying all the playground equipment to pouring cereal, we give toddlers plenty of opportunities to investigate, explore and play in a safe, secure, yet stimulating environment.
Our unique blend of education and care meets emotional needs while promoting good social skills and learning. And in accordance with our Village Early Learning Center curriculum new concepts are introduced when your child is ready, not on a set timeline.

There’s nothing terrible about two’s – they’re just beginning to test their independence, influence and control. At this age, children are making huge strides, and our specially designed program provides lots of guidance along with the independence they crave.
And the exclusive Village Early Learning Center curriculum is designed to nurture all the different ways that children can be smart – from building an architectural masterpiece to creating an interpretive dance.

As a Young Three
your child is transitioning from a toddler to a preschool student. Chatting with friends increases verbal and social skills. Solving shape puzzles strengthens problem-solving skills, while drawing and painting nurture creativity. Young Three teachers work to foster self-esteem during one-on-one journal time and in group activities. As preparation for moving into our exclusive Village Early Learning Center
preschool curriculum, we introduce one concept at a time, so your child feels proud, not frustrated.
Because this curriculum recognizes that there are many different ways to be smart, your child will learn to love learning. And that means your Young Three will really be prepared.
3 – 4 Years
Now is the time to truly start discovering the world. What better place to start than at The Village Early Learning Center? Our exclusive Village Early Learning Center curriculum was designed to encourage exploration and embrace all the different ways that children excel. Aligned with standards set forth by national accrediting associations, this curriculum helps children expand on their own unique gifts or “smarts.” And it works: a recent kindergarten readiness study showed that in just six months, children in our program made educational gains usually expected after a full year.
