Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC)

Our Philosophy

To build a positive self-image in children through love, respect and appreciating them as individuals. We believe that each child is unique and needs to grow and develop as a whole person within an environment designed with his/her needs in mind. Social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth cannot be separated in the learning process. Our setting is planned so that children can learn through actively participating in the learning process as they discover their world.
