The Sargent Early Learning Center is a Cooperative Learning Center with a developmentally appropriate program for preschool children. The program has been developed to be a positive experience to enhance self-esteem, social skills, developed motor skills and cognitive learning. These skills are developed through play, music and movement, readiness activities and learning centers.

The children are under the guidance of a caring professional staff. The school provides a model preschool for children ages 1 through 5 and follows the Sargent School district calendar. The center is a licensed facility with a maximum of 60 children.
