Accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, the Early Learning Center (ELC) adheres to the NAECP's rigorous standards and provides a secure environment and superior curriculum.

NAEYC logoThe center maintains a lower adult to child ratio than is required by state licensing, allowing our staff to focus on individual needs. The high quality of care offered in this program is due to the professional teaching staff, who hold Associate and Bachelor degrees, in addition to many years of hands-on experience. Our staff prides itself on teacher longevity, a family-friendly atmosphere, and our continual commitment to quality care.

The ELC is located in a sunny building, formally utilized by Toledo Public Schools. The building contains large, spacious classrooms, a full-size gym, and an open, airy kitchen. Hot meals are prepared on the hospital campus and served at our center daily. We are located in a quiet, residential neighborhood, just right for discovery walks. Large fenced-in playgrounds are used in conjunction with a spacious front yard for play and sports.

The ELC provides quality care for children of faculty, staff and students, as well as for families in the community, beginning at 18 months of age up to kindergarten. An adventurous field-trip based school-age program is also available during the summer months, for children ages 5-10 years.
