    We hope that you have had a wonderful summer and are ready for an exciting year at the Valley Early Childhood Center.  The staff at the Valley are committed to your children and starting them off on a POSITIVE PATH to learning and growing.

    Students will be focusing on five domains of early childhood education:

    • Domain 1 – Approaches to Learn
