Children ready to take the next step in their education will have a chance to learn more about Cranberry Township’s Early Learning Center.
The Center will welcome parents of preschool-age children to an Open House from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, November 16 inside the Township Municipal Center, 2525 Rochester Road.
Families considering enrolling their children are welcome to attend and tour the state-of-the-art facility. The Center includes advanced security and sanitation features, an in-house library, and a full-size gymnasium.
Staff will be available to meet parents and students and answer questions. Registration opens to existing students on December 5 and for new students on January 9. Students are accepted into the program on a first-come first serve basis with an anticipated waitlist.
The Early Learning Center holds morning sessions for 2 ½ year olds as well as morning and afternoon sessions for 3–4-year-olds and 4-5-year-olds.
The Center’s program for 2 ½ year olds is designed to be a child’s first classroom experience with an emphasis on language and social development.
Twice-weekly programs for 3- and 4-year-olds cultivate creative growth and motor development and offer early exposure to art, math, and science.
Three-day and four-day Pre-Kindergarten programs for children ages 4 and 5 focus on preparation for kindergarten. This class is designed for children who missed the kindergarten cutoff date or those in need of one more year of preschool to refine skills to set them up for success in kindergarten.
The Kindergarten Prep program uses hands-on learning in both large and small groups. Students are exposed to different math, literacy, STEM, social, emotional, dramatic play, and sensory activities in an environment designed to cultivate a well-rounded learner prepared to confidently start Kindergarten. Students in this class should have completed 1-2 years of preschool or Pre-K.
Registration is not necessary for the Open House. All are welcome.
