We are so excited about your interest in our stellar, OSSE gold star rated-NAEYC accredited program. As you peruse our website you will soon discover what distinguishes our program as one of the premier early learning experiences for young children. Collectively, we are a community of diverse, family focused individuals who are committed to facilitating a life-long learning experience for our youngsters. We fulfill this mission by providing a developmentally appropriate curriculum, The Creative Curriculum. The children’s learning experience is enriched with weekly Spanish instructions, music and movement classes, yoga lessons, soccer training, and international music sessions. Aside from the program’s many offerings, I think what people like most about St. Albans Early Childhood Center is the dedication and commitment of its leadership, warmth and knowledge of the teachers, interest and involvement of the parents, and the manner in which we diligently work together to ensure that our children thrive during their formative years and beyond.
Come by the center and see what make us so special. Our doors are open.
See you soon, Donna C. Mason, Executive Director
