Early Learning Program

Our Philosophy

Superior Schools Early Learning Programs were founded on the philosophy that all students are entitled to the best education possible. Our mission is to challenge each student through logical and creative thinking skills. Superior Schools Early Learning program is structured to give each student the solid foundation of core values and key educational components needed to prepare them for the next level of their education. We provide an accelerated academic program that challenges them to excel at learning while giving individualized support to each student.

 

We strive to help all children gain the skills they need to be 100% ready for Kindergarten.

 

Our caring, experienced, and highly-qualified teachers are dedicated to providing a rich, nurturing environment that will prepare your student for kindergarten. We promote independence in an organized atmosphere with a structured routine that helps them to successfully adapt to an academic learning environment. We also teach students to work well with others in a classroom setting through listening, sharing, and cooperation.

We combine technology, music, imagination, and play with our innovative curriculum that is driven by play and hands-on activities. For the success of each student, our program requires the support of parents, the community, administrators, and highly qualified teachers. The environment created in our classrooms provides opportunities for all students to develop memories of compassion, inspiration and affirmation which lays the basis for a love of life and lifelong learning. We further believe that the ultimate learning environment must be full of excitement and fun for all students.
