Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Community Mennonite Early Learning Center (CMELC) is concerned with the development of children. We wish to aid children in growing, not just physically but also intellectually, socially, and emotionally. In working with children and their familes, we help to foster trust, autonomy, initiative, and responsibility - all parts of a healthy personality. Children will be exposed to their world through socialization, respect, and co-operation.
CMELC does not replace the home - it complements it. We provide experiences to enrich children's lives through play. Our staff is well-educated,
trained in early childhood practices, and are carefully chosen to offer the best early educational experiences as well as love and support for you and your child."
