Early Childhood Learning

Tamassee DAR School’s Early Childhood Learning program provides full-day care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers aged 3 months–4 years. Our classes use the Teaching Strategies Gold curriculum which focuses on play-based early childhood learning through developmentally appropriate practices.

Low child/teacher ratios and small classroom sizes allow greater personal attention for each and every preschool child in our care. Whether you are seeking care for you infant, toddler, or preschooler the Early Childhood Learning Center (ECL) is here for you.

Tamassee DAR School’s Early Childhood Learning program is licensed by the South Carolina Department of Social Services, nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), and an ABC Quality Center. Every child deserves the chance to reach their full potential. Let us encourage, challenge and inspire your little ones to develop a love of lifelong learning.
