Angel Learning Center Held Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration for 8 Million Dollar Early Childhood Education Facility in Savannah/Pooler Area

Angel Learning Center Held Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration for 8 Million Dollar Early Childhood Education Facility in Savannah/Pooler Area

(SAVANNAH, GA) One of the largest child development centers in Georgia, the Angel Learning Center, held a ribbon cutting ceremony at its new 20,000 sqft facility at 178 Basswood Drive, Savannah, GA 31407.

The public and parents of prospective students were able to tour the $8 million dollar state-of-the art facility. The Angel Learning Center offers programs for infants (6-weeks-old) to pre-k children year-round and variety of diverse and stimulating enrichment programs for after-school students (up to 18-years-old).

According to the Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy at the University of Denver, the birth-to-three period is the fastest rate of brain development across the entire human lifespan. Angel Learning Center understands this and has created a unique approach combining a developmentally appropriate curriculum with balanced technology and language integration.

Pediatric occupational therapist and child development expert Cris Rowan states there are four critical factors children need to prosper in their psychological and physical development: touch, connection to humans, movement and being close to nature. The center will provide a private learning interactive ecosystem (nature), a hands-on learning kitchen (connection to humans), STEM laboratory (touch), gymnasium and infant/toddler gross motor room (movement) and art studio (creative expression).

The Angel Learning Center designed an interactive kitchen which will allow students to study healthy food choices, sustainability and the use of whole foods rather than processed foods. The center will have vegetable gardens on the grounds to allow children to see the process of food preparation from “farm to table.” All food served at the center will be organic and created by a chef on staff.

The center also has a staffed nurse and observation room to care for sick children until further care can be provided. “We want our parents to know we have not only the child’s learning interests in mind, but that we also keep health and safety as a top priority.” said Sheri Showalter, Program Director.

Highlighted activities for the indoor gym and gross motor room include a variety of exposure to different ball activities, balance, tumbling dance, yoga, and calisthenics. The art room will provide opportunities for creative expression through painting, exploring water-colors, pottery, clay and wire sculptures, paper mâché, and paper oriented projects. The STEM laboratory is designed to challenge students in a variety of topics related to science, technology, engineering and math.

Using an educational bilingual language program developed by a leading neuroscientist Dr. April Benasich, educators, native language experts and a bilingual mother, Angel Learning Center will offer families 14 different languages to integrate into their child’s daily learning.

“Many early childhood centers with programs of this caliber around the United States can easily range from $400-600 a week,” said Showalter. “Angel Learning Center is delighted to introduce this type of learning center to families in our community for a significantly lower rate and show that high-quality learning can be affordable.”

The Angel Learning Center is currently accepting enrollment applications. For enrollment information, visit http://angellearningsavannah.com/register-now/
