Welcome to Johnston Community School District and the Johnston Early Learning Academy! Our program serves more than 300 students in ages from 2-years-old to 4-years old.

Our mission is to strengthen the understanding and cooperation among our home, our school, and our community in early learning developmental skills. It is our priority to establish a culture in our program that fosters a love for learning, an environment that welcomes curiosity, and above all, a collaborative effort of educators and families who have accepted the responsibility of ensuring that our children grow and prosper. We understand that each moment is precious for our young learners and we strive to make our time with our students meaningful socially, emotionally, physically and academically every day.

We are proud to be a part of the Johnston Community School District and invite you to explore our website and read more about our program, our highly qualified staff that bring a wealth of early childhood knowledge and years experience to our program, and the opportunities of joy and learning that awaits your child.
