Little Silver Education Center
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Where Children Are the Center
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers thrives on its unique ability to attract families from economically and geographically diverse neighborhoods to the rich history of downtown New Jersey. Our teachers embrace this diversity by fostering each child's individuality, creativity and learning style in a nurturing environment with strong home-school connections. We demonstrate our commitment to public service and diversity by providing tuition on a sliding scale to state employees and welcoming voucher families to our Center.
Our staff meets or exceeds state regulations for the training and preparation of early educators and professional staff. Each staff member contributes to the planning and implementation of the curriculum in order to provide a safe, nurturing, and engaging school experience for each child. Empowered Learning Transformation Centers also strives to exceed state regulations in providing lower student-to-teacher class ratios.
Teaching staff plan a developmentally-appropriate curriculum for each child using the Teaching Strategies program. We believe in emergent curriculum where activities are based on the children’s interests and needs. Our curriculum is designed to foster the continued development of each individual child’s cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth through hands-on active exploration, experimentation, and creative expression.
The Center is open from Monday – Friday, from 8:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the exception of staff development days, early closings, legal holidays observed by the Commonwealth of New Jersey, the day after Thanksgiving, five days for Winter Break, and snow days. The Center also reserves the right to close in emergencies by order of the Board of Directors.
