Early Childhood Center

Welcome to the Early Childhood Center (ECC)

A warm welcome to the Early Childhood Center (ECC)! Here at SIS, our Early Childhood Center offers our youngest students a nurturing, caring, and joyful environment. In the ECC, we value the uniqueness and significance of this stage of development - it is a magical time in our children’s lives. From this happy place, our children embark on their journey of growth, development, and exploration.

Our ECC staff are qualified, dedicated professionals who inspire our children to wonder, explore, and imagine. Talented and creative staff, highly inviting indoor and outdoor facilities, and links to the greater SIS community enable us to offer rich, inspiring experiences. This sets the stage for child-directed learning that empowers each child to develop and grow in a personalized way.

Guided by holistic early childhood philosophies and frameworks, our skilled teachers weave conversation, activities, and projects into daily exploration. This facilitates our students’ emotional, social, and cognitive growth and learning, and builds foundations that will last a lifetime. Our young students develop learning habits: inquiry, investigation, independence, socialization, risk-taking, and communication. They develop confidence, empathy, and cultural awareness. They experience early literacy and numeracy concepts in a fun and developmentally sensitive way.

In partnership with our parent community, the ECC approach honors each child’s individual path as we work together to develop their foundational knowledge, skills and attitudes. These, and the emotional attachments they form with teachers and friends, become the blueprint for their learning journey into elementary school and beyond.

Our ECC Division includes three Nursery Classes (2 - 3 year olds); four PreK-1 Classes (3 - 4 year olds), and four PreK-2 Classes (4 - 5 year olds). If you are new to Shekou or an existing parent, we invite you to visit to join in on our fun and learning!

Warmest Regards,

Kasey Burns
Director of Early Childhood Center
