At Formative Years Learning Center our mission is to provide a high quality, early learning program to ensure that each child succeeds in their potential as creative individuals. We work on the development of the basic skills and competencies of childhood by planning lessons and recreational activities that are flexible to the characteristics, needs, interests and goals of our individual children and parents. All curriculum adheres to national standards.
Concrete physical activity, exploration, experimentation and self-expression is encouraged in a happy, stimulating, teacher-directed program. Our well-equipped, open-education environment provides a variety of learning "centers" where young children are empowered to make choices about activities that suit them. Our daily lesson plans incorporate hands-on, physical learning opportunities with creative themes that encourage children to explore and learn in a way that is relevant to their world - while exciting and fun!
We take full advantage of the many wonderful resources available in center city by planning trips to parks, museums, libraries and special events to enhance each child's intellectual, social, emotional, physical and academic development.
