About Us


Our Mission

We believe that all children are learning to live in their world, therefore, it is our job as educators, parents, and community to teach and guide our students. It is our goal to show children that we can make better choices throughout our day. We believe in demonstrating positive guidance through our own actions.

We value each child as an individual thus, we meet each child at his level of understanding. We believe age-appropriate learning activities will foster a child’s love of learning. At Wise Early Learning Center, we implement all aspects of the developmental domains of kindergarten readiness with an abundance of hands-on learning activities.
