Early Childhood Adventures


The Adult Learning Center’s Early Childhood Adventures Program offers high quality, affordable childcare for children from 6 weeks through pre-kindergarten.

We are accredited by NAEYC, the highest credential awarded to childcare centers nationwide.


Who We Serve

Early Childhood Adventures serves children from six weeks old through pre-kindergarten.

We offer full time care, Monday through Friday from 6:30am-5:30pm, year round.

We are open from 6:30 AM to 5:30 PM, year-round.

Program Highlights

Our curriculum is designed to stimulate children’s physical, social, emotional and language growth through play. Our professional staff provides a nurturing, safe and predictable environment that invites children to be actively involved in their learning, to make choices, to observe and to succeed.

Our daily schedule offers a balance between active and quiet times, large and small group activities, indoor and outdoor play, and child-initiated or teacher-facilitated activities.

  • Our teacher/child staffing ratios exceed state guidelines.
  • Nutritious breakfast, hot lunch and snacks are served daily through our USDA program.
  • A clinical child psychologist provides guidance to parents and staff.
  • Our bright air-conditioned facility is safe and inviting, and our colorful playground promotes development of physical skills and exploration of the outdoors; our gymnasium is available during inclement weather.

What We Offer

  • Infants – Babies (6 weeks to 12 months) are encouraged by our philosophy that infants “can do.” We provide a nurturing, warm, stimulating environment.
  • Infant/Toddlers – The older infant and younger toddlers (12 months – 2 years) learn through “messy art” projects, manipulative materials, and nursery gym. We sing, play, dance, and read with children to develop their language skills.
  • Transitional Toddlers – Our older, physically active toddlers (2 years 9 months – 3 ½ years) are exploring and on the move – both indoors and outside.
  • Preschool – Children (3 ½ – 4 ½ years) learn through “play with a purpose” in an environment that invites them to manipulate materials, ask questions, and find answers.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (4 ½ – 5 ½ years) learn the skills they need to succeed in school. Structured centers, activities and themes give children pre-reading, writing and math skills to get ready for kindergarten.
