Early Childhood Education

Our mission is to provide a caring and nurturing learning environment so that each child will reach their potential and have the necessary skills to be successful in kindergarten.

Ballard’s Early Childhood Program is committed to providing affordable quality education for children ages two through five in a daycare setting. Ballard assists families in closing the gap between school and home by focusing on trauma-informed care with on-site counseling.

In accordance with our mission, our program focuses on:

  • Caring, dedicated teachers that create learning experiences focusing on the individual child and promote creative intellectual expression.
  • Creating an environment where each child is treated with dignity and respect and has the opportunity to grow and learn at his or her individual pace.
  • Supporting children by emphasizing the context of family, culture, community and society.
