Early Learning

Father and daughter, adorableEarly Learning Center

The Early Learning Center (ELC) serves 95 children ages 1 month to 5 years and includes an award-winning pre-school program recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a Center of Excellence for its strong, literacy based curriculum. For the past 5 years, 100% of children graduating from the ELC have tested at or above state kindergarten readiness standards, which is the primary indicator of educational success.

We make full use of community resources, including the nearby public library, parks and play spaces, to provide children with a well-rounded, experiential program. In addition, every child in our pre-school program receives swimming and water safety lessons in our Olympic-size pool. This program is licensed by the MA State Department of Early Education and Care and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Subsidies are available for income-eligible families.
