    THE PIERCE EARLY LEARNING PROGRAM is committed to providing a nurturing and secure educational setting for young children and their families.  In a safe, age-appropriate, engaging environment, children learn and explore as they experience their world.  Our High Scope play-based program encourages the development of each child’s unique potential.  The process enhances physical, emotional, social, creative and intellectual growth. Staff, children, and families learn to value diversity and to foster individuality, self-confidence, love of learning and respect for themselves and others.
