Early Learning Center @ Milham – A positive learning environment is provided for children from 6 weeks until school-age.  We are proud of our 4 star rating with the Great Start to Quality program.  We are open Monday - Friday from 6:30 am - 6:30 pm.  All programs utilize the Creative Curriculum model. 

  • Infant/Toddler for children from 6 weeks to 2 years old.  Our experienced caregivers will provide a safe and nurturing environment while using positive encouragement.  This program is offered full time only.
  • Transition - for children who are 2 and are starting work on potty training.  Our paitient and kind caregivers will help them find success in their journey.  This program is full time only.
  • Preschool - for children who are 3 and 4 and toilet trained.  Both our Safe Harbor and Bright Beacon classrooms concentrate on the nine areas of development and learning; cognitive, social-emotional, physical, literacy, language, mathematics, science, social studies and the arts.  Families can enroll for a few hours a couple of days a week or for full time care.  Screenings and assessments are completed on all children.  Families will be invited to conferences twice a year. Our goal is for all children to leave our program fully prepared for Kindergarten or Young 5s.
