School Information

The Early Childhood Learning Center's mission is to intentionally build a collaborative learning community which supports the growth of physical, social/emotional, language, literacy, and pre-academic skills for all children through developmentally appropriate practices that serve as a foundation for future learning.

ECLC is a place for children birth through five and their parents. We provide a continuum of quality early childhood programs and services to meet the unique needs of our community.

History of ECLC

The Early Childhood Learning Center was established in 2002, to bring together all of the early childhood education programs within IUSD. As Los Naranjos Elementary School was closed, ECLC took its place. Today, ECLC staff are highly trained and qualified professionals, teaching in a developmentally appropriate environment using curriculum and materials based on best practice and research in early childhood education. We have the unique opportunity to provide a continuum of services, collaborate together to share resources, and offer a range of early childhood educational experiences that align with the California State Learning Foundations. We strive to support our students and encourage success throughout their early childhood educational experiences and beyond.
