Welcome to St. Al's Early Learning Center

St. Aloysius Gonzaga Early Learning Center Curriculum Philosophy Statement

At the St. Aloysius Gonzaga Early Learning Center (ELC) we will provide a wide range of hands-on interactive materials, allowing children to experiment and explore their surroundings. We will strive to stimulate creativity and build a positive self-image in each child. The St. Aloysius Early Learning Center community creates and upholds a safe and nurturing learning environment. We believe that learning occurs at every moment of a child’s life and it is our privilege to provide these opportunities. Children have the right to be safe, comforted, respected, express emotion, make choices and above all be heard. We will provide a caring, loving, and supportive environment in which all staff members will meet children’s needs at all times. We adhere to the Washington State Early Learning and Developmental Guidelines in curriculum planning. Our ELC community supports children to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially, and physically to their own greatest potential. Our ELC is Christian based, celebrating and acknowledging Jesus’ life as well as his teachings. We believe family is the child’s first and most important teacher. Therefore, we welcome families to be part of this environment, where families are allowed to explore and experience the same journeys as their children, while receiving support, encouragement, and a partnership from all staff at St. Aloysius Early Learning Center.
