Early Learning Center

The College of Southern Idaho Early Childhood Education Learning Center is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children twelve months through five years of age. The center goes beyond offering child care and daycare services. The center provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the program’s daily schedule, each child has the opportunity to create, explore, learn problem-solving techniques, develop personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through firsthand experiences. Children are not expected to perform beyond their abilities or to meet a set of standards-based on “speeding up” learning or “hurrying” skill acquisition. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self-and teacher-directed activities.

Staff members serve as positive role models and provide care and education that is supportive, nurturing, warm, and responsive to each child’s individual needs. We respect families as the primary and most important providers of care and education. We believe parents and teachers are partners in the educational process.

The on-campus Center is state-licensed and NAEYC Accredited to provide services to 53 children. Teachers have a degree in Early Childhood Education, attend yearly training, and maintain current First Aid/CPR certification. The Center is a participant of the USDA Child Nutrition Program. Nutritious meals are served at the center and are provided at no extra cost. The Center is located on the Frontier-Parkway between the CSI Baseball Field and the Expo Center.
