Westmoreland Children’s Center believes that play is essential to children’s overall development. Inventors. Problem-solvers. Discoverers. Dreamers. Children are born with a natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them. They’re programmed to learn. At WCC, we know they learn best by investigating, exploring and playing. We provide fun activities and opportunities for growth in the areas of: Social-Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies and the Arts. Indoor and outdoor playtimes are valued components of our program. From our classrooms to our common areas, everything about WCC has been developed to help children build relationships with warm, caring teachers while they learn in a safe and stimulating environment. We provide play and learning materials that meet children’s needs for exploration and active learning.
Children must move their bodies and use their senses to understand their world. That’s why we divide each of our classrooms into interest areas where children can make emotional connections with themselves, their peers and adults.
Our preschool program focuses on fun and positive learning experiences for 2 to 5 year olds. Students develop social, physical, and cognitive skills through interactive, hands-on experiences. Early Childhood teaching is theme-based and always age-appropriate.
WCC offers part-time and full-time programs for the school year (September – mid-June). Each class is taught by one of our wonderful lead teachers and one or more energized assistant teachers.
