Early Childhood Services & Programs
Helping young children grow and learn through hands-on discovery.
From preschool through first grade, the early childhood years represent an important period in a child’s life when many social, emotional, and learning skills develop. The Early Childhood services at Laughlin Children’s Center address the needs of young learners with programs that include academic evaluations and Skill Builders.
Collaboration with other departments and open communication with parents are important aspects of the Early Childhood services at Laughlin Children’s Center. The department’s array of services target the development of the whole child by stimulating physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth in ways that are developmentally appropriate and honor the age and background of each child.
Our Early Childhood staff has professional training and credentials in child development, early childhood education, or elementary education, and our programs are licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as well as accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Screenings are available at the Center by appointment. For more information about scheduling a screening, or to inquire about having the Center come to your preschool, please call us 412-741-4087.
