As an early childhood center, we know that early childhood education is beneficial for all of our students, but at our school we want to provide a high quality education that will build a strong literacy and mathematical foundation with an exposure to rich fine art experiences. Our students will experience three years that will have them reading at or above grade level and expose them to art, drama, music, dance, painting, computer design, and many more activities.
At Neff ELC we are committed to developing readers out of every student. Every day students from Pre-K to First grade come by Mr. Leal's office to share their favorite book and display their reading skills. Additionally, students are encouraged to read every day for at least 20 minutes a day. Here are some pictures of our Neff Star Readers Club.
