Early Childhood Services

Learning begins the moment we are born.  During the early years, children learn about themselves and the world around them.  Their personalities take shape, and they begin to develop the foundations of knowledge that will support them throughout their lives. Rich Early Childhood Programs provide the opportunity for children to begin their learning in developmentally appropriate environments designed to meet the needs of young learners.​
