ELC Programs

The Early Learning Center at Assumption provides many different programs to fit the needs of your child. We provide a well-balanced curriculum in a safe Christian environment that promotes growth and development of each individual child to meet his or her physical, emotional, social and cognitive needs. The uniqueness of each child inspires our work.

PreK

Our PreK program is a readiness program for 4 and 5 year olds. This program is more structured
than our other early learning environments. It provides all the necessary environmental components
for each child to develop at their own pace yet encourages the growth that is needed to experience
success in Kindergarten.

PreK Jr.

For our younger preschoolers, we offer PreK Jr. This program is for children not quite ready for the
structure and readiness that PreK offers but focuses on learning basic skills of listening, speaking,
learning rhymes, learning finger plays and communicating in both Spanish and English. We also
focus on honing the student’s fine motor skills with name writing, cutting, crafts, etc.

Preschool

This program is for the littlest preschooler. This class caters to the early learner in that we are
inspired by their movement and interests. Each child is welcome and allowed to broaden their world
in a safe manner. We realize that the transition for this age is much harder. It is a small class
therefore the child's needs are recognized and met.
