The Early Childhood Center is the youngest of the district children and selfproclaimed as the Spartan Sparkles. The Salida Early Childhood Center serves
as a community information center for families. We focus on developing a positive
self-concept & sound learning skills. Our programs provide developmentally
appropriate learning experiences and activities that nurture children.
Our staff assists and supports families by encouraging self-sufficiency
skills and providing information about local resources in the areas of family, health,
