Columbus Early Learning Centers offers high quality, caring child care for ages six-weeks through five-years-old with a focus on helping children develop the skills needed to succeed in school and in life. Private pay or Title XX government subsidy is accepted for those who qualify. Call early to begin enrollment. Waiting lists may apply.

Infants (ages 6 weeks to 18 months):
In the infant classrooms, the children follow their own individual schedules as they grow. Teachers assess age-appropriate growth and plan activities based on each child’s developmental needs.

Toddlers (ages 18 months to 3 years):
Teachers in our toddler classrooms focus on the individual needs of the children, while helping them learn to become part of a group. Language arts, art, and conceptual activities are planned within a free-flowing schedule suitable to the needs of these young children. Learning centers focus on reading/numbers, development of physical skills (large movement and fine motor skills), home living and creative play.

Children ages 3 to 5 spend time on self-help, social skills, cognitive development and Kindergarten-readiness. This is done through activities such as: arts & crafts, group time (singing and reading), science exploration and pre-writing activities, field trips, large muscle play (inside and outside), fine motor skill activities, learning centers and classroom computers. Our Kindergarten Readiness Program helps prepare preschoolers for a smooth transition into their first year of school. The Kindergarten Readiness teacher helps children recognize their numbers, letters, and many other areas that help with being prepared for success in Kindergarten and the school years beyond.
