We believe the early years are among the most important time in a child’s development.
The Early Learning Center at Middlesex College’s main campus in Edison creates a nurturing environment where children can explore, problem solve and feel part of a classroom community. Classrooms are organized into “interest” areas that are supported by a creative curriculum and aligned with New Jersey Pre-School Standards guidelines.
Daily routines are established to provide a structured learning environment designed to enhance your child’s individual strengths. You’ll be able to view lesson plans on a parent portal and communicate with your child’s teacher.
Our caring and experience staff, who are professionally certified, will work to create a positive early childhood foundation.
