    Early Encounters believes that all children begin learning at birth. It is the role of the teacher to provide guidance and expectations for the child that gives them positive learning experiences. We believe learning should be fun, challenging and always age-appropriate. It is our goal to instill a love for learning and the ability to make good choices in all children who enter our program.
