Mission
St. Alphonsus Early Childhood Education Center is committed to nurturing each child's spiritual, intellectual, social, moral, emotional, and physical development for life long learning. Our comprehensive early childhood program stresses that each child is offered education in a Christian environment that develops their unique talents and gifts as a child of God.

Philosophy
Our curriculum supports the uniqueness of every child and is designed to provide hands-on learning in a safe, creative and stimulating environment that promotes confidence, independence, and an opportunity to develop interpersonal relationships with other children and adult staff. Communication is an integral component of our relationship with parents. We want our children to explore and discover, and to make choices and decisions.
