Sunrise Early Learning Center (SELC) is designed with children in mind. Our goal is to support the development of the whole child and to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which children will grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Our dedicated, caring staff design engaging, developmentally appropriate, hands-on learning opportunities to meet the needs and interests of our learners. We partner with and engage our students’ families by offering additional learning opportunities to parents and guardians.
The Early Childhood Screening Team of the Marinette School District provides a developmental screening as a service to the families of young children who live within the school district boundaries. The developmental screening checks on a child’s overall development and determines if the child may need more testing or services before kindergarten. For further information concerning a developmental screening, please contact our office at 715-735-2700.
At SELC, our students engage in modern learning through experiences and environments which allow for student choice, exploration, creative expression, problem solving, practice of school-readiness skills, technology, and growth across domains (social-emotional, motor, cognitive). These hands-on experiences foster the development of the whole child and prepare our students for success today and in the future.
Reading and Writing
Readers Workshop and Writers Workshop are two methods of instruction that make learning relevant and mastering new skills - fun! Both methods of instruction involve the teacher providing direct instruction; children growing through individual conferences and feedback; and each child making progress toward increasingly higher skills. We know not everyone learns at the same pace. Therefore, reading and math intervention services are provided to students needing extra support.
Engaging in a variety of strategies we begin to develop critical thinkers and problem solvers. As we build a strong foundation of numeracy skills, students also begin to engage in meaningful mathematics conversations to deepen conceptual understanding, strengthen procedural fluency, enhance their reasoning skills, and justify their strategies. We build the foundation so that all students can achieve a high level of mathematics proficiency.
Supporting each child with a well-rounded educational program
Students have art, music, physical education and library on a weekly basis.
Strive Time during the school day allows for all students to get individualized support to advance their learning. Teachers add physical movement, positive behavior recognition, and social-emotional skills to each day to help children learn and grow!
Breakfast is available daily for All Day 4K and 5K students starting at 8:00 a.m. and complete lunch service is available.
Activities through-out the year encourage families to partner with the schools to help all students experience success.
Children enter preschool with a wide range of experience and knowledge, and they each develop at their own pace. To plan activities that are appropriate for each child, teachers constantly observe and record our children’s changing abilities. We need to know what individual children can already do and what they are ready to learn.
