The ELC (Early Learning Center) is a language-based preschool program that combines an understanding of each child's developmental level and individual learning styles with an opportunity to learn from and interact with peers in a nurturing childhood environment.  There are two unique routes for participation in the ELC.  As a student with special needs, a child either transitions from the Birth to Three state program or is identified through the school district child find program.  Children without identified special needs (Hand-in-Hand students) are selected through a lottery program.
