About

  • Philosophy

    We believe that all children can learn and grow in a nurturing, caring, and safe environment that allows them to make meaningful choices and encourages them to become active learners.
     
    Believing that children are influenced within the home, community, and social environment at an early age, all programming for a child, whether full or part day, supports a child’s development by providing a safe, healthy play and learning environment.

  • Mission Statement

    One of the earliest goals for Early Learners Children’s Academy/Scripps Ranch Preschool was to offer high quality childcare services to families throughout the community. We continue to strive to meet and exceed our goal of offering the best possible childcare to the families that entrust us with their children.

    To enable us to reach this goal, it is vital that all staff members are willing to perform their job duties to the best of their abilities. It is also equally important to maintain a positive attitude at all times.

    • To respect each child’s individuality and encourage their respect for others through social skills.
    • To allow children to explore their environment and be active, inquisitive, creative learners while developing at their own individual pace.
    • To empower children by allowing them to make their own choices, take risks, and share their own ideas so they can reach their optimum potential.
    • To help children develop an enthusiasm for learning, where school is a positive place to be.
    • To foster good communication with parents so that they feel comfortable their children are in a safe, secure place with adults they can trust.
    • To encourage self discipline by having limits clearly defined, consistently enforced and kept to a minimum.
