My son and daughter have been attending the New Milford Early Learning Center (ELC) for over 4 years. They have participated in the daycare program, the pre-kindergarten 3 and 4 programs and the summer camp program. Our experience with this center has been nothing but positive.
The ELC is a nurturing, safe, educational and supportive environment that helped my children to thrive and grow.
My children were more than ready to attend kindergarten at the public school thanks to the staff and pre-kindergarten programs at the ELC. They were prepared for the classroom setting, had good socialization skills, knew their alphabet, and the list goes on. The ELC helped to create a solid educational foundation that will benefit my children always. I will always remember the excitement in their voices when they would tell me all about what they learned and the hands on projects they participated in.
The ELC is a second home for my children and it feels like we are leaving our children will family. As a household with two working parents it is extremely important for my husband and I to know how safe and well taken care of our children are when we are not around. Christine and her staff ensure that every child is in good hands. The staff is calm, caring, compassionate, dedicated, creative and loving.
Although my children are now in elementary school they still ask to return to the Early Learning Center every summer. Together we see how the center is growing. We see the faces of new children, the familiar faces of the staff, the new garden learning center and various other educational and fun activities designed for the children.
As a director, Christine has created an optimal environment for all children attending. My children are just 2 examples of the lives she has touched and helped to nurture and educate. Christine and the ELC will always be a part of our family. We will continue to praise and recommend the center. I can only thank them for helping me to raise and teach my son and daughter to be loving, respectful, kind and intelligent people.
