Executive Director's Message

Faculty, parents, students, alumni, and community members; welcome to 2021!
As the Executive Director of Hoffman Early Learning, I would like to thank all of you for your support during these challenging times. While there have been struggles along the way, I feel confident that we are on a path toward a greater sense of normalcy. I look forward to working with our dedicated staff, parents, and community to establish a strong foundation and true love for learning for our preschoolers.
My staff and I remain committed to diversity and establishing a science-based approach to early childhood education, focusing on the whole child, which includes social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and academic skills, as well as the arts. It is our goal to ensure that learning is meaningful, relevant, and fun. In doing so, students are provided with vast opportunities to explore and discover, nurturing their curiosity. It is our goal to foster strong developmental relationships, continuing the balance of child-initiated and adult facilitated learning experiences.
As we carry on learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will work collaboratively to create a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment while cultivating the needs of our students. As educators, we are charged with the responsibility of giving our children the roots to grow and wings to fly. As we move forward together, I invite you to join us in our efforts to produce successful learners. I welcome questions, concerns, or input to better foster our home-school relationship. I am eagerly anticipating a successful and end of the year at Hoffman Early Learning Center.
As always, I encourage you to please continue to refer to our school website and our social media pages for additional information. For your convenience, helpful links and resources are posted on this page as well.
In closing, I want to reiterate our gratitude for your continued support and wish you and your family good health and good spirits.
