We are proud to be the Early Learning Center for Northeastern Wayne Schools. Our youngest Knights are the future of our school! Northeastern Early Learning Center is excited to have a staff of 5 preschool teachers. Each preschool teacher has a unique background and education in order to serve students in many different ways. Mrs. Katie Hampton serves 3 year olds, Mrs. Shannon Hardy serves 3 & 4 year olds, Mrs. King, Mrs. Morefield and Miss Cox serve our 4 and 5 year olds. All classrooms have a classroom aide that supports the teacher in daily schedules and needs. Our center offers a five day a week program from 8:30-2:45 that includes academic, social- emotional, social as well as gross and fine motor opportunities. Students focus on skills that are developmentally appropriate and prepare them for their first years in elementary. We also offer On My Way PreK to all 4 year olds and CCDF to all 3 & 4 year olds that qualify. The Early Learning Center follows Northeastern Wayne Schools’ calendar.
We are excited to be inviting families to participate in their students' learning outside of the classroom. Events such as an Open House in August, Grandparents/Someone Special day or Trunk or Treat, Family Winter Event are ways for families to participate. Students also had the opportunity to attend a field trip to Brumbaugh's Fruit Farm in Arcanum, OH. Students learned how to pick apples, how to sort apples, picked pumpkins, rode on a hayride and learned about how bees make honey. During fire safety prevention week, the students walked next door to the fire station and learned from local firefighters and Reid EMS about fire safety and first aid. The turn out to all events have been incredible. We are planning more events for Christmas and spring for families to enjoy.
Working with families to create a team approach to serve students is one of our major priorities. Early years are so important for success down the road.
