Pre K


The EMCEL preschool room is designed for children ages 3 to kindergarten ready

and is open year round for full day care. Our Preschool classroom is fully inclusive

for children at all levels of development and promotes individuality, self-direction

and self-esteem while allowing children to learn about being members of a group.


The curriculum includes two research based models.


The “Open the World of Learning” (OWL) curriculum is inclusive of all appropriate developmental domains. Experiences focus on letter and number recognition, phonetic awareness, basic math, science, and social studies concepts, health, nutrition, safety, feelings and school readiness.


The Incredible Years curriculum strengthens children’s social, emotional and academic competencies such as understanding and communicating feelings, using effective problem solving strategies, practicing friendship and conversational skills, as well as appropriate classroom behaviors.


Activities include Daily calendar and weather activities and there are a variety of developmentally appropriate toys available, which encourage imaginative play.


Each day, parents will receive a “Daily Report” providing details about your Pre K student’s day, including participation in activities, performance with curriculum and play.


Child Care


EMCEL child care provides a warm, safe, and nurturing environment for children starting at 3 months old. Children feel safe to explore their surroundings and are given adequate “free play” to express their own individuality and learn from their peers.


Infants make new daily discoveries in a safe, nurturing environment at EMCEL. Learning experiences focus on social and play skills and language stimulation.


Toddlers learn through sensory experiences that enhance their cognitive, language, social and motor skills. Learning areas are focused on dramatic play, creative arts, language and sensory exploration to develop an understanding of early concepts such as shapes, colors, and numbers.


In addition to Preschool program, EMCEL child care for preschool aged students is offered before and after each day of the preschool calendar. Full time day care is available when pre-school is not in session.


Each day, parents will receive a “Daily Report” providing details about your child’s day, including feeding, napping, diapering, participation in activities and play.


Summer Care


The EMCEL Summer program provides fun, developmentally appropriate activities for all children throughout the day. Seasonal activities include nature walks and outdoor play, while maintaining a focus on early learning.


Each day, parents will receive a “Daily Report” providing details about your child’s day including participation in activities and play.
