Our Program: The Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center (ECELC) is Barnstable's public preschool. ECELC is an inclusive program which educates students ages 3-5 years with disabilities alongside their typically developing peers. We prepare students for Kindergarten success by thoughtfully incorporating concepts and skills into play and thematic activities, so that learning is fun! We want to ensure that your child's first school experiences are positive ones, so that they develop a life long love of learning.
Our Mission:We strive to maximize the achievement of allour young students. We aim to provide children with high-quality social, language, and early academic experiences, which address each child's individual needs in an emotionally and physically safe environment by following developmentally appropriate, best practices for young children of all abilities, embracing diversity, and by providing a standards-based curriculum.
Our Staff:Our staff is what sets us apart from all the rest! Our teachers are highly-qualified, licensed Special Educators with years of experience teaching students of all abilities who are able to expertly match each child's learning style with tailored instruction to meet individual needs. In addition, we have two Speech-Language Therapists, an Occupational Therapist, a Physical Therapist, and a School Psychologist working with our teachers and students to provide any additional support they may need to make progress toward their learning goals.
Part of our vision at the Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center is "collaboration with families and community". Our goal is to work with parents/guardians, doctors, specialists, and community organizations to expand learning experiences from school to the home and community settings, so that each child has plenty of enriching early learning opportunities prior to beginning Kindergarten.
