Our Philosophy:
Millburn Church Early Learning Center offers a variety of preschool classes to meet the needs of every young learner. Our classes offer a balanced curriculum encouraging children to participate in hands-on learning opportunities while having fun at school. Spiritual enrichment, indoor and outdoor experiences and Christian teachers create an environment that models the highest quality early childhood development experience for every child. We understand that your child comes to us with unique experiences, interests and learning styles. Our goal is to truly know your child well and use this knowledge to guide, support and motivate him or her. We believe that good teaching requires continual professional development, personal reflection and collaboration. We value parent involvement at every level and encourage you to partner with us to give your child the most powerful and joyous preschool experience possible.
