Weekday Early Education (WEE)
Partners in the journey of childhood
We believe in families! We welcome families into our center. Family involvement is always important for children, but especially during the early years. We want you to be a part of your child’s early school experiences and encourage you to visit and participate in your child’s day. Our commitment to families includes providing opportunities for family fun and engagement. We pledge to partner with you on the wonderful journey of childhood.
We believe each child is a gift from God! Every child is individual and develops at his or her own pace. Our goal is to welcome your child and provide opportunities for growth in all aspects of development. From social to spiritual growth, from cognitive to physical, we provide developmentally appropriate activities and guidance that allow individual differences to blossom.
We believe in play! Play is an important aspect of early childhood. Children learn through play. Play not only provides children with opportunities for social growth, but also cognitive growth. Our day is structured to provide a variety of activities, including play, that encourage children’s development.
