    Our Programs

    Infant Daycare

    Your baby’s brain is developing at an amazing rate, so our infant nursery is all about brain development. In our infant program, we teach tummy time for social bonding and physical development and baby sign language to help your child communicate their needs. Your primary caregiver will help your baby progress through important developmental milestones while working closely with you to provide consistency with feeding, playing and sleeping schedules.

    Toddler Childcare

    Our toddler program is designed to meet your toddler’s physical and emotional needs, while helping them adjust to a more formal learning environment. When your child shows they are developmentally ready to start potty-training, your teacher will partner with you to create consistency from school to home.

    Step-Up Early Preschool

    Our early preschool program is designed to assist during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool! Our teachers provide a more structured environment that responds to your child’s natural curiosity and offers room for exploration, learning and fun.

    Preschool Program

    Our preschool curriculum is focused on providing your child with a solid foundation in the skills needed for Kindergarten and beyond. The preschool years are a time of great creativity and social growth. Our teachers focus on introducing structure and routine, while facilitating fun activities that develop your child’s language and literacy, math, science, creativity, Spanish and social skills.

    Pre-K Program

    Our Pre-Kindergarten program prepares your child for the adventures of kindergarten. With a careful balance of freedom and instruction, your child will participate in interesting learning activities in language, math, science, social studies, Spanish, music and art, with a special emphasis on STEAM. Special focus is also given to building your child’s social and emotional development, language and literacy, executive function and creativity.

    School-Age Program

    Our school-age program offers a safe, fun and supervised environment to start and end the school day. Your child will participate in fun, interactive learning experiences, receive homework assistance from teachers, spend time with friends, and exert some energy on the playground! Transportation to and from local elementary schools is provided. Fresh breakfast is served in our before-school program with an afternoon snack served in our after-school program.

    Summer Camp

    Extreme STEAM Summer Camp at Foundations is fun, innovative and deceivingly educational! Extreme STEAM is a STEAM-infused summer camp. Each week of camp features a new theme packed with fun and educational STEAM projects and related field trips (if circumstances allow).

    Center Director

    Hello! My name is Stacey Elliott-Westfall, and I am super excited to have joined this amazing team at Foundations Early Learning Center in Sherrills Ford. I have been working in education for 31 years, and I have partnered with students from birth through eighth grade and their families. I have a passion for building the foundations for student success, and truly am a math geek.

    I graduated earlier this year with my master’s degree in Curriculum Instruction and Leadership. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my grandbabies. My nickname is G3 since my family will welcome a third grandchild in January. What I enjoy most about working with children is being able to connect with the way they view the world in the effort to support their individual developmental needs.

    I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with our amazing staff and our families to provide a nurturing, well rounded, and fun learning environment for each of our students for years to come.
