Welcome to Foundations Early Learning Center!
“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
You want the very best for your child in all aspects of life. And so do we. That’s why our programs are created to help your child reach their full potential – in both school and in life.
We provide high-quality, state licensed infant, toddler, preschool, Pre-K, school-age and summer camp programs. Our programs utilize the nationally-recognized, award-winning Creative Curriculum® with a focus on STEAM in all our classrooms.
Why Is This So Important?
High-quality childcare offers long-lasting social, economic and academic benefits for children. And the earlier a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road.
The first five years of a child’s life are the most crucial time of growth and learning. In fact, 85% of a child’s brain develops by age five, before a child even enters school!
- A long-term study found that children in higher-quality childcare were better prepared for school at age 4. At age 15, they were still performing above their peers.
- Children exposed to reading, vocabulary and early learning between the ages of 2 to 5 perform better as students throughout their lifetimes.
- Adults who participated in early childhood education programs are 80% more likely to attend college.*
- Adults who attended early childhood programs earn 33% higher average salaries.*
