 Clara Hearne’s Vision: 

Our vision at Clara Hearne Early Childhood Center is to provide a child-centered environment for the educational, social, emotional, and physical development of each child while nurturing enthusiasm for learning and producing confident learners ready for kindergarten.


All North Carolina Preschool Programs must use the North Carolina Foundations for Early Learning and Development These standards address the following areas: Approaches to Play and Learning, Emotional and Social Development, Physical Development and Health, Language Development and Communication, and Cognitive Development. Teachers must use these early learning standards to guide their planning of high-quality learning experiences for children. 

In addition to NC Foundations, our classrooms use The Creative Curriculum and Teaching Strategies Gold. For an additional emotional/social curriculum, we use the Center on the Social Emotional Foundations for Early Learning.
