Welcome

The mission of Whittier Early Childhood Center is to nurture the development of early learning through play and social interaction, preparing our preschoolers for kindergarten success.

 

Early childhood education lays the groundwork for the development of a lifelong learner. As educators, it is our goal to support the whole child by providing learning opportunities in all areas of development including social-emotional skills and academic foundations. Children develop an excitement for learning through a play-based, multi-sensory approach and meaningful interactions with others. We strive to provide a fun, safe, and exciting culture that encourages students to take risks, problem-solve, and move toward independence. Our program provides learning experiences that incorporate student interests and address individual needs. Additionally, we believe that our relationships with students and families are central to the advancement of each child’s development.

 

Our intent is to build a strong beginning for future learning and empower children to reach their highest potential.
