Thank you for your interest in St. Albans Early Childhood Center
Here at SAECC, we believe that young children learn best by doing. Learning requires observing, exploring, and experimenting to find out how things work and why they work the way they do. At SAECC we pride ourselves in expanding children's imaginations creatively through the use of real materials and by encouraging them to explore the world around them by using all of their senses: touching, tasting, smelling, looking and listening.
Our educational curriculum is based upon child-initiated and teacher-facilitated activities. Teachers plan and supervise activities. Consequently, this practice enhances children’s self-esteem, encourages problem solving, and expands language development. We respect children’s developmental stages by tailoring activities and expectations to the age, interests and abilities of the individual child. Every aspect of the learning experience is considered. This includes: the types of activities planned, the teaching strategy utilized, the way the environment is organized, the selection of toys and materials, the daily schedule, as well as the language staff use with the children. Every component is designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and to give each child a successful start in school. Above all else, we want children to enjoy their day, make friends and to benefit developmentally from their early learning experience.
We would be delighted to welcome you and your child to St. Albans Early Childhood Center (SAECC). We are confident that your child will have a nurturing and stimulating child care experience with us.
