The mission of the Early Learning Program is to prepare young children academically and socially for successful schooling as bilingual learners in a learning environment that actively engages and empowers staff, parents and community members for healthy living and lifelong learning. We offer a full immersion dual language program where children are prepared to succeed in school with a knowledge of the Spanish and English languages. At NSCA Early Learning, children learn through play and are encouraged to be curious independent thinkers. Our centers are high quality and enrolled in Keystone STARS. The Children's Center, our largest center, is rated 4 Keystone STARS, the highest rating possible, and is a NAEYC Accredited center.
Children are fed nutritious family style meals which are culturally appropriate. We cook meals onsite and incorporate traditional Latino and Puerto Rican foods and fresh produce. Our Farm-to-Classroom initiative funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation incorporates healthy eating, gardening, nutrition lessons, and connections to local farms into the school day. Parents are also given access to nutrition and cooking classes, delicious healthy recipes, and affordable produce and locally grown food.
