USES’ Early Childhood Education program prepares each child emotionally, academically, and physically to succeed in kindergarten. Our Early Childhood Education program is accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children.

We have 62 slots for early education for children between the ages of 3 months to 6 years of age. The Teachers in our program create a warm and nurturing educational environment where the development of children’s positive self-esteem is fostered. We use Creative Curriculum as a guide to planning developmentally appropriate curriculum that ensures each child’s individual needs are met and that each child developmental needs are met so that they are prepared to move on successfully to their next educational experience. Arts programming is integrated in ECE classrooms through the Arts in Early Learning Curriculum, which uses sensory rich, STEM based (science, technology, engineering, and math) arts experiences to teach abstract concepts in a tangible and accessible way.

We offer sliding scale Department of Early Education and Care subsidized slots and also accept Vouchers. We offer three programs with different age ranges: the Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Programs.
