Through cooperation, partnership, and support from the Highlands United Methodist Church, the Gordon Center for Children provides early childhood education opportunities to families of Highlands and the surrounding areas.
Our mission is to promote the cognitive, physical, emotional, social and spiritual development of the children in a warm and safe environment. We strive to equip young children with the necessary skills for academic success while encouraging a life-long love for learning.
Currently, three classrooms are open to children ages one through five. The Nursery Class is open for children ages one to two. The Transition Class is open for children ages two through three. The Pre-School Class follows a Kindergarten prep curriculum and is open for children ages three through five, but the class is reserved for children the two years prior to beginning Kindergarten.
Morning sessions operate from 8:00am until 12:00 Noon. Afternoon sessions operate from 12:00 Noon until 5:00pm.
