WELCOME TO EARLY CHILDHOOD

Infants - Under 3 Years Old

Congressional School's Early Childhood program for children ages 6 weeks to 3 years is designed to nurture the physical, emotional and cognitive needs of young children.  Emphasis is given to language development, fine and gross motor skills, self-awareness, building relationships with others, exploring the environment, and preparation for Preschool.

When parents see their children on daily walks enjoying the beauty of nature, or when they see their children sharing and playing with others, they get a glimpse of some of the things that make our Early Childhood program special – but when they see the chemistry that grows between the children and their caregivers, they understand just how special.
