NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR ENROLLMENT.
The Patricia Carter Early Learning Center of Nazareth College is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children. We believe that the goal of early childhood education is to provide opportunities for children to learn about themselves and their world through stimulating, hands-on activities. Play is a strong component of our program, whether child- or teacher-directed, allowing children the freedom to explore and observe their environment in ways that suit them individually.
Our learning center provides a low teacher to child ratio (1:7 for three year olds and 1:8 for four year olds), which allows for individualization and quality care. Morning and afternoon snacks and lunch are provided on a daily basis.
Daily schedules are set up to provide active and quiet periods; individual, small and large group experiences; fine and gross motor activities; snacks, lunch and rest time.
The Learning Center operates weekdays from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, 49 weeks per year; it is closed one week in August and two weeks during the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Tuition is not charged during these breaks.
The Patricia Carter Early Learning Center of Nazareth College is licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services, and has achieved accreditation through Pathways National Early Education and Care Accreditation.
