Joseph M. Ferraina Early Childhood Learning Center's primary focus is to lay a foundation for children to become lifelong learners in a school that is filled with discovery, exploration, excitement and enthusiastic hands-on learning.  Students will be the center of all efforts emphasizing, social, emotional, and physical development in a school climate where all feel safe, supported, and respected.



    Joseph M. Ferraina Early Childhood Learning Center is committed to quality child-centered education.  In partnership with our staff, parents, and community we will strive to nurture the 'whole child' and maximize his/her potential.  We offer a meaningful and developmentally appropriate program that fosters individual success and a love for learning.  Our curriculum is aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and encourages students to think critically and creatively in an environment that promotes and respects academic and cultural diversity.  Together, we will encourage each child to become contributing members to our school, our community, and eventually global society.
