The Early Childhood Recreation Learning Program is an ideal environment allowing children to receive a quality educational and recreational experience. Our philosophy is to learn through play. The teachers are educated in the field of early childhood and are there to assist in nurturing your child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. The program is designed to develop your child’s self image.
