Last Updated: 6/22/2020 6:55 PM

The Early Learning Center at Assumption provides many different programs to fit the needs of your child. We provide a well-balanced curriculum in a safe Christian environment that promotes growth and development of each individual child to meet his or her physical, emotional, social and cognitive needs. The uniqueness of each child inspires our work.



Our Pre-K program is a readiness program for 4 and 5 year olds. This program is more structured than our other early learning environments. It provides all the necessary environmental components for each child to develop at their own pace yet encourages the growth that is needed to experience success in Kindergarten.

This program is for the littlest preschooler. This class caters to the early learner in that we are inspired by their movement and interests. Each child is welcome and allowed to broaden their world in a safe manner. We realize that the transition for this age is much harder. It is a small class therefore the child's needs are recognized and met.
