Teens & Tots is a child-centered early childhood program for children 3–5 years old located at the East Rochester Elementary School. High school students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Program at the Eastern Monroe Career Center (EMCC) assist in the Teens & Tots Program under the close supervision of their teachers.
Our goal is to support child development in the areas of social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and language development. Our philosophy is that young children learn best by doing and is built on developmentally appropriate practices in early childhood education. Children learn through play and active exploration of their environment through child-initiated learning and teacher directed activities.
