    EC-Central Testimonial 3

    Central School Road has supported my children through their early development by fostering a caring environment while supporting their love of learning. Attending Central School Road allowed my children to strengthen their curiosity of learning and provided them meaningful social interactions with their peers.

    EC-Central Testimonial 2

    Early Childhood Central School Road is such a wonderful preschool to be a part of. The staff and the students truly are “family”. With a cheerful atmosphere, exciting activities, clean & safe classrooms, a fun-filled outdoor playground, and a colorful big indoor playroom it is hard not to smile and appreciate the joy surrounding this building.

    EC-Central Testimonial 1

    If I had to describe my favorite trait of Central School Early Childhood with one word, it would be intention.  I love teaching here and being part of this school because we have created a community of kindness with high expectations and supports on every level.  Intentionally, we push these young students and ourselves to embrace the growth mindset and the power of the word yet.  Our students are shown the importance of making mistakes, bravely trying new things, and building relationships with our staff and their peers.  If you join our school, you will be loved and encouraged growing as a member of the Caterpillar family.
