Early Childhood Education

Early education and enrichment set the stage for academic achievement and social development. Phipps Neighborhoods provides children up to the age of five with learning opportunities and environments that put them on the path to future learning and growth. These programs all share the same goal: to partner with parents to provide well-rounded, child-centered, and experiential early learning.
