|The Early Learning Center
Our Mission and Philosophy
We provide children a balance of social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Our philosophy maintains that children need a safe, comfortable, enriching environment in order to develop to their maximum potential.
The Early Learning Center provides a secure, nurturing, early educational environment that uses developmentally appropriate activities, experiences and materials to engage children in active, meaningful learning.
The curriculum used in each developmental grouping reflects our philosophy of developmental, play-based learning.
The Early Learning Center is located on the first floor of Frances Warde Hall. This is the first building on the right when entering the Carlow University Campus from the Fifth Avenue driveway. Parking for pick-up/drop-off is located in front of Frances Warde Hall.
