for children who will be 5 by September 1, 2015
While Kindergarten registration can occur at any time, it is best for parents to register their child(ren) as early as possible. Registration for Kindergarten takes place at the child's home school. To register, parents are asked to bring a driver's license and proof of residency such as warranty deed or current property tax statement, lease/rental agreement with occupancy date including a list of all occupants, and any two of the following items: current gas, electric, telephone or cable bill. No water bill will be accepted for this criteria. Also, bring your child's original birth certificate and immunization records.

Philosophy

Farmington Early Childhood Centers have a philosophy based on the interaction of the child and his/her unique experiences, guided and supported by staff, to insure the fulfillment of each child’s individual potential. We, as a staff, are committed to recognizing and adapting to each child’s individual differences and learning styles. This is accomplished through a productive play-based curriculum which is developmentally appropriate. This curriculum is implemented through hands on activities, which are child-centered and facilitated by the teacher and through interactive events for the whole family. The success of the program is enhanced by the partnership of family, community, and school staff. By providing a safe and healthy environment, a child will be able to accept challenges and take risks in preparation for becoming a thoughtful problem solver.



Our Spring Extravaganza Family Event helps teach our children about the importance of recycling.
