Early Learning Center strives to provide the highest standards of educational excellence within a Christ-centered preschool environment. ELC provides both part-time and full-day options for children 18 months through VPK, 4 years of age.

The most important period of learning for a child is from birth to the age of six. ELC uses the WEE Learn curriculum as a guide to help each child reach his or her full potential spiritually, socially, physically, emotionally, and academically. Our program is developmentally conscious and provides a place where children can learn and grow in a positive, Christian environment. ELC participates in the School Readiness Program. ELC is a private, licensed preschool and a ministry of BEACH Church.

ELC is the absolute best!

Both of my children attended ELC from 18 months through VPK and they wish that they were still attending the school to this day. The teachers and staff members became friends of ours and we still keep in touch often. Their day-to-day interaction with my children taught them to be kind with cheerful and loving personalities. Lots of fun and laughs at ELC. My children are excelling in elementary school and I have the teachers and staff at ELC to thank.

I worked at the ELC for about ten months with the 2-3 year olds. I immediately felt welcomed by all the teachers, and my student’s parents were always easy to get along with and friendly. The way it was run at the time was very organized and structured, and I felt like it had a good balance of learning, crafts, snacks (of course!), and just simple play-time and fun. Overall, the environment was inviting, cheerful, and calming and if you want teachers who will care about your children, I suggest the Beach Church ELC!

Being a teacher and my 2 nieces attending Beach ELC, I think it is a caring and loving community. The staff is great and the kids are awesome!!

My niece attended the ELC and had a wonderful experience. Her teacher went ABOVE AND BEYOND in making her feel special, cared for, and loved. I would recommend the ELC to any family looking for a safe, academic, engaging environment for their child.

Not a good feeling...
0.5

I would like to preface I have 12 years in early childhood experience and dealing with parents of all types of children in regards to development.
After touring at beaches early learning center I left extremely upset with the directors tour making me feel as if my son was not wanted in their school. My two year old son has a developmental delay and needs encouragement for self feeding when eating (like most 2 year olds) and supervision when climbing step stool or stairs (like most two year olds). When asking the director if the teachers supervise while using the high step stool in the two year old class and while on the playground equipment she stated she couldn’t guarantee that they would be able to accommodate. While I appreciate knowing in advance if this school was the right fit the tone and judgement from the director (who stated she had a background in special needs) after just observing my son walking was hurtful and unprofessional. A comment during my tour from the director was made to me after her statements “not that we don’t want you here,” which indicated to me she was aware she was making me feel that my son was not wanted.
As his mother I am aware my child will have more challenges but for anyone who works with children that have additional challenges they know inclusion is the best environment for those children. I left there puzzled by the directors approach and judgment after I repeatedly told her he has no cognitive delay and does well with his peers with the understanding he will have physical challenges. I would not recommend this school to anyone that has a child with individual needs. In my experience in childcare regardless of your child’s developmental path every child has their own challenges and children should not be held to a “one size fits all” standard.
