Inspiring Creativity. Instilling Knowledge.
Early education is a critical part of a child’s development and research shows it not only prepares children for kindergarten, but for a successful future of life-long learning.
Day Early Learning centers utilize the Creative Curriculum, a research-based curriculum that addresses children’s cognitive, language, and social-emotional development. This curriculum is aligned with the Foundations to the Indiana Academic Standards for Young Children from Birth to Age 5, Indiana’s early learning guidelines.
Both Creative Curriculum and the Foundations provide the skills that children are to achieve at various ages. Children’s development is carefully documented through weekly observations and other assessments. Lesson plans intentionally reflect what skills children need to learn in order to reach their potential.
When your child attends Day Early Learning, each day will include experiences that foster creative expression, cognitive development, social and emotional growth, motor skills, and problem-solving skills.
At Day Early Learning, we believe that the foundation to a lifelong love of learning for a child begins with a nurturing relationship with their teachers. Our teachers establish a caring relationship with each child – providing a sensitive, responsive and comforting environment for each child to feel safe to explore and take risks in their environment.
Day Early Learning teachers are education professionals that hold either a bachelor’s or associate’s degree in early childhood education, or a Child Development Associate (CDA) credential. Additionally, teachers continue their education through regular trainings and receive coaching from a DEL Quality Coach, who works with each individual teacher in their classrooms to help enhance their teaching skills. All teachers undergo a screening and background check prior to employment.
