Nurturing, Supporting, & Encouraging

AUM Early Learning Center

The Early Learning Center (ELC) is dedicated to nurturing, supporting and encouraging students as they prepare to enter elementary school. At the same time, the ELC is a model training site and professional development school for future teachers. We serve children from diverse racial groups and ethnic backgrounds–with a variety of academic and social needs–and strive to develop self-directed, self-disciplined, self-responsible children who have a passion for life and a concern for others.
