Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Program is designed around a developmentally appropriate sequence of skills. It is focused on the development of the whole child, emphasizing social, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth.

Learning takes place through a hands on, multi-sensory approach.  We hear, we see, we say, we do. Children learn to work, play, and share with others while developing self-esteem through many meaningful experiences.

The Early Childhood Development Center in Moreland provides a strong foundation for the future academic and social growth of our students. We are dedicated to providing a child centered environment where children learn with joy.


The primary goal of the Moreland Child Development Center is to give your child a head start on his/her path as a creative life-long learner. We provide a caring and safe learning environment for children. By providing a well-rounded preschool that offers multiple opportunities for meaningful learning experiences, we encourage the child's natural sense of wonder and curiosity. Our early childhood curriculum fosters positive experiences and encourages growth in the areas of physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Recognizing that each child develops at his/her own pace, we provide individualized activities to challenge and stimulate learning in a creative and nurturing environment.

Physical development includes motor development, personal hygiene, nutrition, safety, sports readiness, music and movement.

Social and emotional development include building self-esteem, social interaction, self-control, conflict resolution, self-help skills, and an appreciation of diversity and tolerance.

Intellectual development includes early literacy awareness, music, experiences with numbers, speech and language development, creative arts and crafts, and kindergarten readiness.
