Welcome to Partners in Learning
Welcome and thank you for visiting. What you’re looking for in early care and education is right here, from our classrooms, NC Pre-K classrooms, after school care, and summer enrichment camp, to family resources, college internships and volunteer opportunities. Partners in Learning was conceived in the spring of 1996 by a grassroots group of individuals that wanted to build a model center that would include typical as well as children with special needs, and implement services that would enrich the lives of children and their families. We are a model center for inclusion, providing early intervention services to young children with special needs, including developmental therapy and special instruction, support groups for families and inclusive classrooms. Schedule a tour online or contact Deborah Howell at 704-638-9020.
Partners in Learning is a 5 Star Rated Licensed childcare program providing care for infants through 12 years old in Rowan County. A 5 star rating is the highest license attainable. The North Carolina Star Rated License was established in 1999 to better define the quality of child care in the state and to assist parents in choosing child care. Only 14% of all child care centers in North Carolina hold a 5 star license. NAEYC Accreditation represents the mark of quality in early childhood education.
Our Mission & Philosophy
Our mission is to model the highest quality learning environment that stimulates families and the community to provide optimal growth and development of children.Our vision is that families and the community will have the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute significantly to the optimal growth and development of children.
Partners in Learning’s educational philosophy is research-driven, experience-rich and will effectively help young children to learn in a way that is lasting and fosters a life-long love of learning. Research tells us, and our own experience proves that children learn best by discovering and constructing their own knowledge through hands-on fun learning experiences i.e….meaningful play.
