The Child Development Program
The Kingswood Community Center (KCC) Early Learning Center (ELC) endeavors to serve and develop the potentials and abilities of young children ages 0-5 into a well-rounded individual through first hand and exciting experiences. The ELC will continuously strive to meet and exceed the required curriculum enhancements to ensure the highest rating with the Delaware Stars for Early Education Programs. This 5 star rating denotes that KCC is superior in both theory, practice, and the direct service approach to early childcare and our community.Another vision for the ELC is to establish internal standards that exceed State standards of quality early childhood education program. We will continue to focus current efforts to excel in the areas of staff training, program administration, curriculum implementation, and quality of child development
The ELC has a team of well-trained early childhood professionals who are dedicated and committed to developing, nurturing, and stimulating the potential growth of young children.
We work closely with local school districts to assure those children entering kindergarten are socially, emotionally, and academically prepared to succeed.
ELCs Toddler program is designed to stimulate sensory activities and language development and provide methods to encourage problem solving and intellectual development.We partner with Project Incite, Parents as Teachers, Read – A – Loud, Nemours, DAEYC, DIECC, and various organizations to assist us in helping to maintain developmentally sound and excellent childcare programs.
