Day in the Life

General School Mission

Capitol Park Early Learning Center is dedicated to providing high quality child care to you and your child. We will provide them with a safe environment that encourages them to explore and grow at their own pace.

Parents play a key role in their child’s success at capitol Park. We gather information from you that will help us to provide a program to meet your child’s individual needs. We encourage parents to be a part of their child’s day. Parents are welcome to come and be a part of their child’s day whenever convenient and possible for them to do so.

We believe our program provides your child with daily experiences which are in accordance with their ethnic and cultural background. It is our goal to provide each child the right to express him/her self in a safe and secure environment and to be allowed the freedom to make choices.

Our teachers share our commitment to providing you and your child quality care. We hire only those that are dedicated to helping your child grow and learn. We facilitate employee growth with ongoing training, evaluation, and supervision. Our teachers need to have an understanding of how children grow and develop. We value the input of our teaching staff and treat them as professionals.

Our program is here to ensure that your child develops a positive self-image and a lifelong love of learning. We are committed to this goal and hope that you will join us in making your child’s experience one that will last a lifetime.
