CHILDREN'S EDUCATION CENTER OF THE ISLANDS - Company Message
We know your child is unique.
Our school is designed so that your child is actively involved in his or her own learning and has ample time to pursue individual interests and curiosities. Separate learning centers give your child hands-on experience in math, science and language arts- through the use of music, art, blocks and other manipulatives, books, dramatic play, housekeeping and computers.
 
Every day is exciting and stimulating.
Each day includes music, developmentally appropriate classroom activities, story time, plenty of free time to explore in the learning centers and lots of time to for outdoor play. There are available extracurricular weekly activities such as arts and crafts, dance, sign language and yoga. We also invite informative special guests such as Ding Darling spokespeople, our island children's librarian and other professionals of interest who stop in to visit throughout the year. Our morning preschool program runs from 7:30am to 1:30pm, and there is also a separate afternoon program which runs to 5:30pm.
 
Terrific facilities your child will love.
 
 
The personal and scholastic attention your child needs and deserves.
Our classes are limited to no more than ten students per teacher. Our college-educated staff combines a wealth of early childhood experience with continuous professional development, and meets regularly to ensure the best for your child.
 
At-home connection
