Early Childhood Education Testimonials

Early Childhood Education Center - Testimonials, The Popoalii Family The Early Childhood Education has played a huge part in our children’s lives, especially their education. This is where they encountered their first learning experience, aside from home.

We chose this program for our children for several reasons. Firstly, this is where I started. To be able to share this experience with my children today just goes to show how great these human beings are, who are able to still be around and teach our children today. Secondly, it’s located in the heart of our city , Carson. Carson has been home to my family since the 1970's.

The staff have grown to be part of our family. They have helped mold such smart, intelligent, motivated individuals who leave the program with such BIG DREAMS! We appreciate you all.

Early Childhood Education Center - Testimonials, The Almazan Family
I enjoyed having my kids attend the City of Carson Early Childhood Education. They taught not only colors, shapes, numbers, alphabet, and other concepts, but also social/emotional and physical development. The program and faculty not only teaches intellectually but also from the heart.

My kids learned how to make friends and remember being taught how to play in a safe and respectful manner. The program takes the kids outside the classroom to educational field trips like the zoo and museums. The program reminds us parents to take a break from our busy lives and celebrate this moment in our child's growth, because we will never get this time back.

I highly recommend this program to parents ( and the waiting list is worth the wait). The City of Carson Early Childhood Education promotes education, socialization, lifetime experiences, and community. The faculty truly care about our kids and our community’s future. I had all 6 of my kids attend for two years at 3 & 4 years old… as well as 4 cousins. Thank you!
