Guadalupe Centers Early Childhood Center

Private-Preschool, Head Start • 3-5 yrs


Children are offered opportunities for hands-on exploration and discovery that help build lifelong critical thinking skills through daily classroom curriculum. This teaching strategy supports every type of learner and addresses all areas of learning required for successful Kindergarten readiness. While all areas are addressed, the social and emotional development of each child maintains its headliner status. Social development provides opportunity to share, cooperate, take turns, compromise and negotiate.

Teaching staff receive ongoing training and professional development to maintain current on the most effective preschool literacy and second language acquisition strategies.
