Toddler and Preschool Programs


Your baby’s first years are a critical time for development and growth. We provide the safe and loving environment for them to begin that journey.


Learning is always fun, and parents agree that the skills their child learns in class help them at home and in the community.


It is our goal to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment to teach them how to become a lifelong learner.

About S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center

We are a Learning Center, Quality First, and We are Lifelong Learners.

S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center is a small school with big ambitions. Our early education specialists and teaching staff are highly qualified professionals who share S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center’s mission to make our community a better place through high quality, inclusive education.

S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center is a member of the S.E.E.K. Arizona family. Our association with S.E.E.K. Arizona gives us access to more resources than most schools, which enhances our students’ educational journeys. These resources include therapy animals, early education scholars, board certified behavior analysts (BCBA), counseling services, speech-language pathologists, and occupational and music therapists to name a few.

We believe all children are exceptional and Specializing in the Education of Exceptional Kids (S.E.E.K.) is our forte.


We are a Learning Center

We are not a daycare. We are an early education-learning center that is staffed by professionals who care. We challenge our students to learn. We push them to become better citizens. We provide them with the tools they need to succeed. If you share these values and would like to learn more, then we would love to give you a tour of our learning center.


Quality First

We are voluntary participants in the Quality First program. This program is a result of a voter initiative to fund and improve early education in the State of Arizona. Participants in the Quality First program undergo regular evaluations in the following areas: health and safety practices, staff qualifications, teacher-child interactions, learning environments, lessons, group sizes, child assessment, and parent communication. The goal of the program is to provide or team with ongoing support and feedback that will make us an even better learning center.


We are Lifelong Learners

We not only believe in creating lifelong learners through our HighScope curriculum, our teachers are active learners, too. The S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center team is constantly training to better our craft and to stay on top of the latest educational research and trends. Along with in-service training days that are conducted by master’s-level trainers, S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center educators attend professional development courses and many continue to further their education at local universities. We’ve found that this organizational commitment to continuing education creates a strong educational environment.

Mission and Philosophy

S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center’s mission is to better our local community through high quality, inclusive education that creates lifelong learners and socially responsible citizens. As the foundation of our students’ academic careers, we know we have a big responsibility to provide an educational atmosphere that produces capable learners. Therefore, we strive to exceed State Standards so that each student is academically prepared for elementary school when they leave S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center.
We also believe that learning shouldn’t stop once the school day ends. Whether it is providing guidance on toilet training toddlers, giving recipe suggestions to help promote healthy eating at home, or offering additional educational materials for at home use, our staff aims to be a resource for parents.


Our Values

S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center is driven by its child-centered core values. We are committed to:


S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center is also guided by the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Code of Ethical Conduct and we promote Person First Language at our facility.


Our Classrooms

Our teacher to student ratio (1:5 infant room / 1:6 toddler / and 1:9 preschool room) is in accordance with state standards and early education best practices. With low student to teacher ratios we are able to provide our students with individual attention, maximize safety benefits, and increase educational effectiveness.


Classroom Ages
Infant Room: 6 weeks – 12 months
Toddler Room: 12 months (and walking) to 3
Preschool Room: 3 (and potty trained) to 5 years old


Our Curriculum
S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center implements the HighScope educational approach to learning ( This research-based curriculum helps children develop through active participatory learning, which means our students learn by hands-on experiences that enable them to plan and explore many of their own activities.
Research shows that HighScope educated children have higher educational achievement, more confidence, and are better prepared to be lifelong learners than most of their non-HighScope peers. Furthermore, our students develop social skills that are often neglected in other curriculums. Parents are surprised when they see their young scholars working through complex problems creatively and resolving personal conflicts on their own. This holistic approach to education is a game changer for most families.
Additionally, our learning center incorporates sensory integration techniques with the HighScope curriculum. Sensory integration includes play activities that use textures, sounds, smells, tastes, brightness, and movement.
