Saint Francis Early
Play. Learn. Grow.
In the first year, babies learn to focus their vision, reach out, explore, and learn about the things that are around them. Cognitive, or brain development means the learning process of memory, language, thinking, and reasoning.
During the second year, toddlers are moving around more, and are aware of themselves and their surroundings. Their desire to explore new objects and people also is increasing. Toddlers will experience huge thinking, learning, social, and emotional changes that will help them to explore their new world, and make sense of it.
During this stage, toddlers will show greater independence; begin to show defiant behavior; recognize themselves in pictures or a mirror; and imitate the behavior of others, especially adults and older children.
As children grow into early childhood, their world will begin to open up. They will become more independent and begin to focus more on adults and children outside of the family. They will want to explore and ask about the things around them even more.
We believe you will find ours a quality program, and that our reputation for a sound curriculum combined with a caring staff will provide the children with an excellent preschool experience. SFA-ELC is a Catholic based, interracial, and non-political institution with programs for infants, toddlers, pre-school, and pre-kindergarten children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. The purpose of the SFA-ELC institution is to provide a full range of full day early learning programs that will benefit the child, parent and community.
