HOUGHTON COUNTY — The Early Learning Center (ELC) is affectionately referred to as “the Center” within our community.
The center opened at the end of winter and is based at Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church in Houghton County. The center was started to help provide more services to the community and to offer more opportunities for child care and development.
A typical day will include structured and unstructured play; art, songs and stories; rest times; outdoor exploration; physical challenges to improve motor skills and many other sensory activities.
The preschool curriculum portions of the day are based on state and national standards and will include activities targeted to all aspects of a child’s developmental needs including cognitive, behavioral, social, emotional, and physical health.
Now one of the inspirations for having the learning center at the church was due to the fact that a school used to be at the establishment. So in honor of the history at the church the learning center will continue to teach the youth in the community.
