COA’s Early Education Centers
COA’s Early Education Centers provide a safe and nurturing environment in which children ages six weeks to six years can learn and develop the skills for future academic and social success. Our educational philosophy is that children learn best when they are provided hands-on experiences. In each of our classrooms, the Early Education Centers provides content-rich, developmentally appropriate curriculum that supports children’s natural curiosity and interests while fostering critical thinking skills and healthy social-emotional development, and building the competencies they need to be successful learners.
A family-centered programming approach is at the core of all COA programs. In the Early Education Centers, parents are encouraged to take a proactive role in programming and engage with staff through daily communication about developmental milestones, quarterly (bi-annual) conferences, parent training sessions, family gatherings, and more!
