The Early Learning Center (ELC) is a new non-profit early childhood program created in partnership with families, educators and members of the community. The Early Learning Center is in the process of becoming a fully licensed, center-based program located at Fort Ethan Allen in Colchester, providing care and education for 40 children ages 6 weeks to 6 years. We believe that children are competent learners from birth. We value children’s natural curiosity and individual ideas and we facilitate children’s learning through a developmentally appropriate, play-based curriculum. Our center is committed to providing the very best early childhood education experience for every child and family in our care. Welcome to our community!
