Our Philosophy is Simple...we are all about kids, learning and fun 



At the Cranberry Early Learning Center, we take great pride in ensuring that each and every one of our students reach their fullest potential. Our Handwriting without Tears curriculum and The Creative Curriculum for Preschool for Ages 3-5 are designed to help prepare children for success by offering them a wide variety of learning styles to meet each child's individual need. We want children to become independent, self-confident, curious learners who can work well with each other. 
Our professionally trained instructors teach our students how to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives. We do this by creating purposeful, productive play experiences. Then, we expand our learning environment through educational field trips and taking full advantage of our in-house amenities such as the gymnasium and library.
Through the activities we plan, the way we organize the classroom, incorporating technology, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with children, we seek to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start in school.

We love hearing from parents!

 

"We wanted to take a moment to thank all three teachers for making our daughter's first experience with school such a positive one. This is also her first experience being away from dad, mom, or grandma ever! She was so happy after class was over. All of you helped give her a big boost of confidence by helping her have a great first day! She even asked to go back tomorrow! It doesn't get much better than that. We Sincerely Thank YOU!"

Our Core Developmental Goals



Social / Emotional: To help children develop independence, self-confidence, and self-control, follow rules and routines, make friends, and learn what it means to be part of a group.

Physical: To increase children’s gross motor skills, such as balancing, running, jumping, throwing and catching, and their fine motor skills to do tasks like buttoning, stringing beads, cutting, drawing, and writing.

Cognitive: To acquire thinking skills such as the ability to solve problems, to ask questions, and to think logically. Opportunities are provided for sorting, classifying, comparing, counting, making patterns, and using materials with their imagination to show what they have learned.

Language: To use words to communicate with others, listen to others and participate in conversations, understand the purpose of print, recognize letters and words, and begin writing for a purpose.
