Early Childhood

The years before a child starts kindergarten are among the most critical in his/her life to influence learning. At Marillac House, we believe that every child deserves a chance to develop in a safe, nurturing, stimulating, and creative environment so that they can become life-long learners.

Early Childhood Program (15 months – 3 years)

Early, positive interactions with caring adults can give young children the confidence they need to explore their surroundings and take delight in their day-to-day discoveries. We build relationships with children by creating meaningful daily routines and experiences that respond to individual children's strengths and interests.
