Welcome To Salida Early Childhood Center

August 2022

Welcome back to school! 

We are so excited to see everyone come through the front doors again.  Whether you are new to our school, or returning, I hope that you will feel welcomed and valued.  Our philosophy is that the parent is the primary and most important teacher of their child. We are here to build on what you are already doing and to support your family.  We have three basic rules at our school:  Be Kind to yourself, Be kind to others and Be kind to our school.

Teaching children kindness and how to interact with their peers is an important preschool skill.  Dealing with and expressing feelings is a huge part of our curriculum.  We go outside everyday unless it is brutally cold, then we use the gym for exercise to get all the wiggles out.  Various community partners bring in music, art and movement to enhance your child’s experience at our school.  Our kitchen works hard to provide nutritious meals and expose children to new foods.  We are very lucky to have a full time nurse, Lindsay on staff to help with boo boos, health questions and preventive health for children, families and staff. 

Please remember that your child must be picked up and out of the building by 3:30. 

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support your family through our school.
