About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Burlington
Welcome to the best preschool in Burlington, NC! My name is Priscilla Young and I am the director of Childcare Network #78. I currently have over 29 years of experience in early childhood, and a Bachelors Degree in Early Education. I cannot wait to share my experiences in the field and work with you and your child. My goal for you is that you and your child's teacher work together to feel confident in your child's progression!
Our focus at this center is on Early Literacy. Children develop much of their capacity for learning in the first three years of life, when their brains grow to 90 percent of their eventual adult weight. Early Literacy does not mean teaching children how to read and write. It is about teaching them the skills they need to read and write beforehand. Early literacy knowledge and skills include language development, print awareness, and writing skills.
Infants, Toddlers, and Twos are exposed to an environment that encourages language development through pictures, stories, songs, and teacher-child interactions. Our Threes and the children in our Kindergarten Prep Academy, (pre-k program for children ages 4 and 5 years of age) are provided a print-rich environment to prepare them for elementary reading. The Young Achievers (after school program) enjoy their cooking, science and drama clubs at the school. These clubs encourage the children to follow directions, explore different ways of doing things, and inspire creativity.
Our Adventure Summer Camp consists of many fantastic and engaging field trips such as swimming, visits to local museums and fun-filled days in the park. We also offer a summer reading program which helps keep the minds of our Young Achievers active.
Call us today and plan a time to come and visit our preschool on Sellars Mill Road. You will see for yourself all of the awesome things that are taking place in our school as well as be able to meet our wonderful staff. We look forward to meeting your family soon!
