Early Childhood

Early Childhood

The first five years are the most formative and vital to the social, emotional and physical development of your child. To meet these needs we have established early childhood programs that enhance your child's development. From music and movement to science and cooking, we have something that will interest your child and inspire them. Under the guidance of our exceptional teachers, hands-on daily activities are designed to promote each child's physical, creative, cognitive, social and emotonal growth.

In some classes, children and their parents or caregivers will enjoy quality time together. In others, children will learn independence while their special adult is not present. Best of all, with such a wonderful start in a nurturing, stable and loving environment, our young students gain a solid foundation for future school success. We look forward to fostering a love of learning in your child!

Please refer to our seasonal brochure for current class offerings. Early childhood staff at the Pat Shephard Center will be happy to answer any questions regarding classes. Please call Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.


For classes without parents, please complete the required paperwork prior to class to save time.
