Early Education Center

"Tell me and I'll forget. Teach me and I'll remember. Involve me and I'll learn." –Benjamin Franklin

Located on the Elmcrest Campus, the Early Education Center provides high-quality early education programming to over 150 children in the community and focuses on three integrated programs:

  • Small Wonders Daycare (infants-preschool)
  • SPICE (special education preschool)
  • Syracuse City UPK (4-year-old Syracuse City School District children)

Our educational learning environment offers high staff- to-child ratios, indoor and outdoor motor areas, and certified, highly qualified teachers. Children are welcomed into a nurturing environment that considers the developmental needs of each child. A considerable part of the preschool day is structured with core curriculum, compliant with our local school districts, consisting of literacy, math, and social-emotional curriculum's, ensuring that children are well-prepared for the transition to kindergarten.
