Full Day Centers

Early Care and Education provides quality child care services for children in Clark County. Our licensed centers offer full-day care and are located on or near school grounds in partnership with local school districts and area businesses.

Daily routines are designed around the individual feeding, diapering, and sleeping schedule of each infant. Caregivers include many learning opportunities within these routines by talking with each infant, playing simple one on one games, and encouraging emerging skills throughout the day.

The room is designed so that play spaces, individual cribs, diapering area, and eating area are easily monitored by caregivers. Safety and cleanliness are top priorities.

Toddlers are in constant motion! You will see them actively exploring their environment trying new ways of doing things. To encourage a toddler to learn through play by touching, seeing, hearing, and moving around, the room has specific play areas. Those areas would include a place for climbing, a quiet book area, low shelves with simple puzzles and manipulatives, and a dramatic play area for make believe play.

Caregivers spend much of their day facilitating the children’s play choices while encouraging social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and beginning language development

The daily schedule is organized around repeated routines that include, diapering, toileting, dressing, eating, and napping. It also includes free play and outside time. Caregivers utilize these routines to nurture learning and as relationship building opportunities.

Our programs strive to provide preschoolers with a safe, healthy, stimulating and caring early learning environment. Activities and routines are designed around children’s interests and developmental needs. The preschool classrooms are divided into interest areas such as blocks, dramatic play, books, puzzles, manipulatives, art exploration and science discovery. The daily schedules offer opportunities for children to make choices about what they want to explore and learn more about while also providing structured and facilitated activities to help support children as they acquire new skills.

Mixed-age classrooms provide opportunities for preschool children, ages 2 1/5 to 5 years, to interact with other preschoolers of varying ages and abilities. This model encourages peer modeling and fosters the development of leadership skills for older children. For the younger children, this model offers a variety of increased opportunities for development including social skills and language development.

Classroom staff provide safe and consistent opportunities for children to learn and grow through trusted relationships and regular routines. The daily routines are designed to provide varied social and developmental experiences, which include small group activities, special projects, quiet/rest time, large muscle play and meals.

We are committed to partnering with families and elementary schools to promote school readiness and strengthen the kindergarten transition process.

Activities, games, and projects are designed to support and enhance children’s development cognitively in literacy, math, science and creative arts. Caregivers also provide daily opportunities for children to be physically active.

The School-age room is arranged into interest and activity areas. These include a comfortable and quiet listening and reading area, table activities such as puzzles and games, art exploration, homework and study area, and building and construction.

Children are given consistent guidance in learning cooperation, conflict resolution, and developing a sense of “shared community” within the group.
