Early Childhood Education

Our Early Childhood Center offers Six Programs

  • Early Intervention Program for Infants, Toddlers and their Families (Birth - Three)
  • Bilingual Playgroup for Two-year olds
  • Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten

PSD's instructional program, at its core, promotes the acquisition of learning skills to ensure preparation for life-long learning. This includes aligning curriculum and instruction with Pennsylvania State standards for infants, toddlers, preschool and school age students. Our goal for Early Childhood Education is to prepare children for continued learning and readiness in the school-age program of their choice.
