Mission Statement

Our Mission at Coccolino’s Early Childhood Center is simple: We strive to provide a safe, nurturing and inspiring school environment full of academic rich materials and plentiful opportunities to ensure that each child gets the best possible start in life. We offer structured, learning-rich and fun-programs that are developmentally and age-appropriate for each child. Our facility is open to all children ages 12 months (or when baby can walk on his/her own) to Grade RR.

We at Coccolino’s Early Childhood Center believe that every child has the capacity to learn new things and with the assistance of a good foundation can every child truly reach their potential. Here at Coccolino’s we provide the foundation geared around the idea that children need a safe, nurturing, healthy environment that will stimulate and encourage positive growth and development. To fully succeed in aiding in a child’s successful development, both school and home must work together to build a strong and healthy relationship and agree on what is best for the child.

We envision children learning the fundamentals of life that will help shape who they will become. Staff and teachers not only teach but also model positive character traits such as caring, confidence, cooperation, kindness, honesty, respect, responsibility and fairness – just to name a few. Children will learn how to build good character traits, as well as learn important early developmental and academic skills that will prepare them for the school years ahead. Teachers will strive to provide a structured daily-routine filled with a combination of learning activities including whole group- and small group-activities geared towards achieving proper academic growth and stimulation in each child. Learning environments will be structured around the concepts of promoting social, cognitive, language and physical skills.


Curriculum Statement

At Coccolino’s Early Childhood Center, we believe in age-appropriate learning – based on the understanding that children learn best in a structured environment that provides opportunities that will enhance and promote learning.

Learning environments in the classrooms will be structured around the concepts of promoting social, cognitive, language and physical skills and development for each age group.

We understand that children learn best in their natural state through play. Playing has long been proven to be an effective way for children to learn. Through play, children are exposed to opportunities to learn how to communicate, share and make choices. Children in their early years learn a tremendous amount from their surroundings as well. We encourage children to learn and experience new things through play.

Through providing a social inviting environment in each classroom, we can promote the social-emotional development of each child.
