Welcome to St.Paul Early Learning Center

The St. Paul Early Learning Center is a church-based center that came about after listening to the needs of the Church community. What better way to give back to the community by investing in our youngest members of the community, a program dedicated to providing quality child care and preschool for kids, ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

At St. Paul Early Learning Center we encourage children to become lifelong learners with positive academic attitudes. At St. Paul ELC each child will develop his or her own unique gifts, experience the joy of learning, and grow in understanding and practice of respect for the dignity of every human being. While at St. Paul Early Learning Center children will have an opportunity to participate in a faith-based and developmentally appropriate learning environment.

We are a licensed, Type I facility
