Early Education Center provides quality childcare services for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years. We are more than just a babysitting service. We strive to provide our children with age-appropriate learning experiences, stressing a positive approach to learning, sharing and accepting responsibility. At all centers, specific academic, physical and social skills are introduced to each child according to his/her abilities.
Our centers are located in Duncannon and Shermans Dale.

Early Education Center emphasizes educating the "whole person" both academically and socially. Sharing, taking turns and playing cooperatively with others is an integral part of the program. Our goal is to provide a higher quality of childcare, within a comfortable and fun environment full of age-appropriate activities. Through the guidance of specially trained, experienced and dedicated staff, the children can learn and grow!

We are doing our best to meet the needs of Perry County residents by providing a variety of programs with a two-day minimum:
• Full day care
• Before & after school care for grades K-6
• Full day summer care for kindergarten & school age students
