The Center for Early Childhood Education

16 months to PreK4

Housed on three newly-renovated, dedicated floors of 41 Broad Street, the Center for Early Childhood Education at Léman is a joyful, nurturing place that sets the foundation for each child's academic, social, and emotional success. Through our play-based program and hands-on learning experiences, children ignite their curiosity and build a sense of belonging during the most influential time in their development.

As an inquiry-based program, we build literacy, mathematics, gross and fine motor skills, music, and world language fluency in a community that values service to others and family. The youngest learners at Léman become independent lifelong learners who are not afraid to take risks.

Léman Explorers

16-24 Months

Our toddler program is the ideal first school experience for the youngest of learners. We prepare toddlers for the routines of preschool through a multi-sensory approach that builds a strong foundation for academic and social/emotional success. Our “grown-up and me” program fosters strong partnerships between teachers and parents to ensure children build a sense of belonging, confidence and independence as they explore the world around them.

PreK 2

We provide an interdisciplinary approach to learning in our PreK 2 classroom, where inquisitive young students build a foundation of academic readiness and social/emotional development. Through hands-on experiences in literacy, math, art, music, and movement, two-year-olds leave our program as engaged learners, ready for Léman's full-day PreK 3 classroom.

PreK 3

Our Threes program promotes social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development in a dynamic environment that promotes increased independence and a strong sense of community. In PreK 3, students participate in music, world language – Mandarin or Spanish four times a week, WonderLab, library and swim. Our students become critical thinkers as they investigate their surroundings and build the literacy and math skills they need for future academic success.

Four to five-year-olds at Léman are increasingly focused on becoming readers and writers. Our multisensory approach to literacy and print-rich environment encourages curiosity, creativity, and collaboration. PreK 4s build leadership skills, self-motivation, expressive and receptive language, and positive self-esteem to create successful and enriching learning experiences each day that prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond. World language instruction continues with Mandarin or Spanish offered four times a week.
