Welcome to Central Early Childhood Center

Central Early Childhood Center’s primary focus is to lay the foundation for the students to become lifelong learners in a school that is filled with discovery, exploration, excitement and enthusiastic hands-on learning. Students will be the focal point of all endeavors stressing academic, mental, emotional, physical, and social development in a school climate where all feel supported, respected, appreciated and safe.

In a partnership with our staff, parents, and community we will strive to nurture the “whole child” to reach his/her fullest potential. To accomplish this mission we will use the curriculum aligned with the NJ Core Curriculum Standards. Students will be encouraged to think and reason logically, critically, and creatively in an environment that celebrates and respects academic and cultural diversity. Together we will facilitate each student to become contributing members to our school, our community, and eventually our global society.
