General School Mission

"We are committed to excellence in early childhood education. As professionals, we act as a resource and role model for the Saint Michael's College Community and the community at large. Our continued professional growth and development is crucial to the high quality care that we provide
In keeping with the missions and goals of Saint Michael's College, the Early Learning Center seeks to provide an environment in which each child can reach her or his full potential. Specific goals include respect for self and others, appreciation of individual differences, non-violence, sharing and health awareness. The Early Learning Center recognizes the uniqueness of each child and that parents know their children best. The staff is committed to working with parents to provide the most appropriate care for their child. The potential for daily communication between parents and staff enhances further the opportunity to meet the children's needs. The Center views its role as that of an extension of the family, not as a substitute for the family. With a comfortable facility and a professional, caring staff, we hope each child will benefit from the Early Learning Center and its program.
