About the Provider

Description:

S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center specializes in early childhood education.  From the earliest of learners in our infant program, through five years of age, we are diligently preparing your child for the skills necessary for success in their home, community, and beyond!

Our caring and highly trained educators ensure that students are getting the most out of their day by assessing and individualizing goals and outcomes for each child. It is our goal to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment which fosters a child's natural desire to explore, discover, create, and become a lifelong learner.

Additional Information:

S.E.E.K. Arizona has been providing therapies, after school programs, and early childhood supports to children in Arizona since 2003.   

Our latest addition, the S.E.E.K. Early Learning Center (ELC), opened it's doors in 2012.  Our developmental preschool program was created in response to an overwhelming demand from parents, requesting a preschool program that offered a more individualized approach to the education of their children.  They required a program that would provide individualized assessments, an language rich environment with a focus on communication and social skills, and family supports in addition to a typical intensive preschool curricula - and we were happy to oblige.

Happy Family May 14, 2014

I can't say enough about the teachers at this preschool. The toddler and preschool teachers have really gone above and beyond to provide my 3 year old individualized instruction in the classroom...and they are constantly giving me tips for things I can do at home. Don't get me started on the infant room and the fabulous Miss Sara! She is constantly doing art projects and science experiments with my 9 month old. The ratios are much lower than the average school and the management are very involved in this program. We are very thankful we found them!
