Mother Goose Early Learning Campus...


At MGLC, our goal is to help prepare your child to successfully and confidently enter kindergarten. The Creative CurriculumĀ® focuses on the total child, bringing together learning in social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive development. It includes phonological awareness, phonics, math, science, Spanish, sign-language, creative arts and music, with endless opportunities for choice, problem solving and creativity. Concepts such as math, science and literacy become more advanced in our pre-kindergarten classroom. 

Our preschool classrooms are designed so that children have the flexibility for choices, with learning centers clearly identified to help children transition with ease throughout their day. Teachers email parents each week, keeping them informed on upcoming projects, events and program highlights. A daily schedule is also posted on the parent board so parents know what the day entails.Consistent communication is key to your child's success at school. Parent-teacher conferences are held three times a year, November, February and May. During conference time, teachers will be prepared to discuss with you, your child's developmental progress, based on the goals and objectives of The Creative CurriculumĀ®. We encourage parents to attend conference time so that you know how your child is progressing toward kindergarten readiness.

As the school year comes to an end and the summer program soon begins, a formal cap and gown graduation ceremony is held in June at the Hiawatha Community Center. During our graduation ceremony, children showcase what they have learned throughout the year, many children performing special reading of poems and favorite books, showcasing their literacy skills, among many other things they have achieved throughout the school year.
