Early Childhood Recreation Learning Program

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.

We offer 1 ALL-DAY program as well as half-day programs. The extra time spent in the classroom allows the children to expand upon their readiness skills for future education in preschool or Kindergarten, and provides an alternative for working parents with a safe, fun and educational environment for their children.

Family involvement is a part of our program. If you register for an ALL-DAY program please send a lunch and drink daily with your child.

The ECRLP will be following BSD100 road map to return. This includes a full remote start for all students on August 24. The return to school transition highlights are outlined below.

  • School begins for all students on Monday, August 24
  • The school year will begin for all students remotely and will progress through hybrid to full in-person learning as guidance allows
  • Assuming our state and region remain in Phase 4 and it is safe bring students back to school at half capacity, hybrid learning may begin after 5 weeks. Regular checkpoints are built into the plan to determine next steps. The first checkpoint is after 5 weeks (September 25) and the second checkpoint is at the end of Quarter 1 (October 23).
  • The remote learning model will be enhanced to include more live lessons and direction instruction.
  • Preschool Enrichment Kits will be distributed through contactless pick up on Fridays from 9:00-10:00am
  • A decision to move from remote learning to hybrid learning will be determined based on state and local guidance
