When Circle of Friends opened it's Learning Center in 2010, our mission was clear: to provide affordable quality childcare for the Chippewa Falls / Eau Claire community. We envisioned a program that would allow children to make their own choices, that would nurture their creativity and that would give them opportunities to explore interests that are hands-on and meaningful. Our program focuses on the whole child, recognizing there are very many components which add up to making up a successful and happy person. Social skills, emotional balance, healthy and active lifestyles as well as being an effective learner are all important areas of growth. We believe in striving towards excellence as well as cultivating a lifelong love of learning.
At Circle of Friends children are placed in classroom groups by age and developmental milestones. Each day includes indoor and outdoor times. Small groups enable the children to interact comfortably with the teacher and with the other children. Activities include story/center time, art time, music and movement, science, learning centers and special classes. Children are introduced to pre-reading and pre-math cognitive skills as age appropriate. We have a large outdoor area with a variety of climbing structures for developing large muscle skills.
