The Children's Learning Center has fostered many community relationships across Nassau County. Many of these relationships are high schools that plan, design and implement activities for the students that bring enthusiasm and a sense of school pride.
Roosevelt High School Comes to CLC's Homecoming
Homecoming is a celebration of our school community shared alongside our neighboring high school, Roosevelt High School. Roosevelt High School participates in our homecoming event by sharing the music of their marching band, running a football clinic for our students with their football players, and performing a dance by their cheerleaders. Below you will find pictures of these fun-filled events.
Carle Place Orchestra Entertains CLC for the Holidays
Once a year, the Carle Place High School Orchestra comes to visit The Children's Learning Center during the holiday season. They play a concert packed with holiday favorites that motivate everyone to clap and sing. At the end of the concert, our students present the orchestra members with beautiful handmade thank you cards.
The Wheatley School is our Close Friend and Partner
In the spring, 100 students from The Wheatley School in Old Westbury visit The Children's Learning Center to host a fabulous carnival with various activities and music. These activities include: arts and crafts, face painting, dancing, collage making, and bubbles. The students from Wheatley are always excited to engage with the CLC students and show them a great time. Wheatley also raises money for CLC at the East Williston Walk-A-Thon. At their Day of Service, a crew of students come to CLC to help with various projects at our school. In addition, every December, we are invited to spend the day at Wheatley at their Intercultural Unity Day. About 30 CLC students board our vans and head out to the high school for a day of culture, great food, and relationship-building.
