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.
