ABOUT THE CHILD ENRICHMENT CENTER
Long's Chapel Child Enrichment Center is a ministry of Long's Chapel that seeks to reflect the highest christian values and the best of care for children. The CEC began in 1965, and in the first year enrolled 35 children into the church-operated weekly kindergarten program. Now, Long's Chapel CEC enrolls over 100 children throughout the year. The CEC has a strong history of embodying the mission of introducing age appropriate curriculum while nurturing the development of faith.
Our curriculum is based on the development of the children. We do a variety of activities in our day, including: sensory, social/emotional, cognitive, fine/large motor, music/language, creative and science. We also feature an anti-bias curriculum which teaches children to respect their own culture, as well as that of others and encourages children to experience people of diverse cultures working together as unique parts of a whole community. Along with our anti-bias curriculum we use the word "friends" to get the attention of our class instead of "guys" and we address the teachers as Miss, Ms., or Mr.
