Our Mission:

The Howell Early Learning Center is committed to giving every child the educational and interpersonal skills needed to live a happy & successful lifestyle.

Our Philosophy:

We believe the best way to accomplish our mission is to involve each child in the learning process, encourage social interaction, and to motivate every child to explore their interests and the world around us.

The Howell Early Learning Center will prepare your child to pursue a full education by fostering a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Our learning program is designed to help children discover a passion for learning by exploring their own interests and inspires children to push beyond the limits of their own comfort zones. We integrate new lesson themes each week, which encourages children to expand their mind and be open to new learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom as a result of being immersed in a fluid learning environment.

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull (and bored) boy”. Children need to play and explore their own imaginations in order to put into action the social and behavioral skills that they are developing. Thus the Howell Early Learning Center supports a balanced schedule of playtime for the children. We encourage children to participate in child-led play styles such as: exploratory play (discovery of materials and objects), constructive play (making things), dramatic play (make-believe), and games with rules (for older children). To enhance the children’s playtime we have provided access to the largest indoor play structure in Michigan, a private outside play area, and numerous toys, games, and resources within each of the classrooms.
