Norma Garcia-Leza EC/PK Center:
At the Garcia-Leza EC/PK Center emphasis
is placed on meeting the child’s cognitive, social, and emotional
needs. We understand that meeting those needs begins and continues with
the child’s guardians; therefore we embrace our families and look
towards working along side with each and every one of them. At our
center the use of engaging lessons provides a development and
enhancement of oral language, social skill development, reading as well
as math readiness. Therefore, the child is able to become a critical
thinker, responsible person and productive citizen. Instruction is
designed to meet the needs of children who have many diverse learning
styles as well as backgrounds. Children are provided a variety of
learning opportunities through modeling, hands-on exploration,
discovery, dramatic play, and guided practice through direct
instruction. The use of manipulatives and purposeful hands-on activities
are emphasized so that the child is able to discover the abilities
he/she possess. Children who attend the Garcia-Leza EC/PK Center are
given the opportunity to make choices in activities modeled by the
teacher. In addition, technology is integrated into the students
learning environment so that they are prepared for the technology world
of today. Our highly qualified staff is ready to meet the needs of the
Garcia-Leza community and is lovingly waiting to meet your child.
