Early Connections (EC) provides a safe, nurturing environment in a licensed facility that invites children ages 6 weeks to 3 years to explore and discover together. Engaging, experienced caregivers build relationships and provide quality early experiences. Stimulating play and age-appropriate activities support all areas of development. The learning environment promotes self-esteem and encourages all children to develop at their maximum potential, while monitoring each child’s health, growth, and developmental needs.
New for 2021-22: The Creative Curriculum® for Infants and Toddlers is a comprehensive, research- based curriculum that helps teachers and caregivers understand developmentally appropriate practice and how to offer nurturing daily routines and meaningful experiences that meet children's strengths, interests, and needs.
