Our Curriculum
The Children’s Learning Center utilizes age-appropriate curriculum.  Children six weeks – one year of age use the Connecting with Infants curriculum.  Toddlers use Adventures for Toddlers and our preschoolers use Adventures in Learning.  These curricula follow the frameworks of Arkansas for Early Childhood Education.  Children are assessed to ensure they are meeting educational and developmental milestones.  Early intervention is key to success throughout a child’s school career.

6 weeks – 2 years of age:    1:4
