The years from birth to age five present a time of crucial brain development in children.
Lund’s Early Childhood Education Program is specially designed to make the most of this important time.
A strong start makes a lifelong difference — especially for children struggling with poverty, abuse, or the effects of early trauma. Research shows that children who have participated in a high-quality early childhood program show higher levels of educational attainment, socioeconomic status, job skills, and health insurance coverage. In addition, they experience lower rates of substance abuse, felony arrest, and incarceration than those who received standard or sub-standard early childhood services.
Our Early Childhood Program is 5 STAR rated, and provides high-quality care and education for 50 children aged two weeks to five years. The program runs Monday to Friday, 7:30 am to 5:30 pm.
Our play-based curriculum allows children the opportunity for social/emotional, physical and cognitive development. We value getting outside, singing, painting, reading, dancing, building, sharing, problem solving, making friendships, playing with moon sand, and countless other fun activities with intentional educational components.
At Lund, we use the Creative Curriculum, an established early education curriculum, that recognizes that children suffering from the effects of trauma must first be aided in social/emotional development before they can begin to master the academic skills needed for success in kindergarten. We employ several innovative techniques designed to serve children from all backgrounds and build the skills for success in school and beyond. We also partner with the HowardCenter to provide therapeutic supports in the classroom.
To ensure early intervention for possible developmental delays, all children in our program are screened and assessed regularly. In addition, we provide parenting support and connections to needed resources to families, to ensure the best possible outcomes for children.
