Our teachers are experienced professionals with degrees or credentials in early childhood education. Our team receives ongoing professional development to stay up-to-date on best practices.

Our goal is to partner with families and create a safe, loving home away from home for your child.

A safe and secure environment for learning and fosters a sense of community.

At LEEC, we intentionally design our early learning environments to meet the needs of the children in our program. Every classroom is furnished with child-sized furniture and engaging, open-ended materials specifically selected to meet the developmental needs of the age group. We strive to make sure every child feels seen, appreciated, and valued as part of our school family. Our facility is equipped with security features that ensure the safety of every enrolled child and family. 

An age-appropriate curriculum that meets the needs of each individual student.

Our program offers an age-appropriate curriculum tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual child with respect for families’ home language, culture, etc. Our curriculum is play based and we focus on teaching young children in the way they learn best- with engaging, hands on experiences in the context of a loving relationship with their caregiver. Our teachers work collaboratively to develop creative learning opportunities that make children excited about learning! We take pride in supporting children’s individual needs and supporting our learners right where they are. 

Small class sizes ensure personal attention from teachers and maximize educational opportunities in a collaborative setting.

Our center’s low teacher-student ratios ensure that our teachers are able to give your child the attentive care and individualized instruction they need. The small class sizes allow our teachers to build loving, supportive relationships with each child. We strive to create an inclusive, collaborative setting where all children can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. 

Nutritious Lunches & Snacks

A child cannot learn if they are undernourished. At Lancaster Early Education Center, we have fun feeding our children nutritious meals and snacks, so their bellies are full and their minds can engage. We work to create healthy feeding habits that will support children’s health and wellness long after they leave our program.  Learn more about the food we offer and view a sample menu.
