The Glen Mar Early Learning Center offers full- and part-time care for infants and children up to age five, regardless of race, color, national, ethnic or religious origins. Full-day programs are available year round for children 6 weeks through age 5. Half-day programs are available September through June for children ages 2 through 5. 

Our Curriculum, “Education through Play”: ELC’s chosen curriculum focuses on play as a key to unlocking a child’s learning and development. Play is foundational for all future learning and creative expression, and is believed to be fundamental to a child’s ability to make physical, cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, moral, and creative connections about the world.

Learning Environment: ELC provides children with a safe, nurturing and welcoming environment where attentive caregivers strive to meet each child’s unique emotional and learning needs. Caregivers provide facilitated developmental experiences in a supportive, enriching atmosphere where children explore, play, socialize and learn with other children as they grow.

Safety and Security: For the safety of the children in our care, all of our ELC classrooms are equipped with high-definition security cameras that are monitored daily. In addition, the ELC entrance and each of our classrooms on the lower level are protected by swipe card access. Cards are assigned to parents at the beginning of each school year and deactivated when a child leaves our program. 

Exercise: ELC’s custom-designed facilities provide children with ample space to stretch their limbs on a daily basis. In nice weather, children enjoy fresh air and sunshine while playing in our large playground area. When it is too cold, wet or snowy, they enjoy playing with balls and scooters, or a good run in our gymnasium.

Snacks: ELC is committed to offering healthy snacks.

Chapel: Once a month, children and parents are provided an optional opportunity to enjoy singing songs and learning age-appropriate stories about God during chapel time.
