“We have chosen the EVJCC for daycare, preschool and camps for over eight years. My kids love the activities, spirit and field trips. I love knowing they are always safe and always having fun at the J!”  – S.W.

The EVJCC Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) has continued to serve children and families inclusive of all races, religions, and cultures.

Our ECLC understands that it is a privilege to partner with your family to enhance education, strengthen self-identity, shape values, and assist with health and well-being through meaningful learning experiences.

NAEYC Accredited, developmental benchmarks are endorsed and designed with a warm and nurturing approach that encourages physical, cognitive and social growth.

When you make the choice to enroll at the ECLC, individualistic diversity is celebrated, creativity will reveal, and a genuine passion for learning will be established.

In every program, and every class, we access the specific needs based on individual pace of development. Our curriculum has been designed for all children to comfortably achieve significant milestones and indicators.


Our J’s Teaching Team

Our dedicated teaching staff works as a team to provide the highest level of care and developmentally appropriate programs for children possible. Besides their knowledge in age appropriate academics, each staff member is chosen for their energy, creativity, enthusiasm, and, of course, for their genuine love of children. Our low turnover rate is just one of the benefits to your family.

Background Checks

We go beyond state licensing requirements by doing our own criminal conviction and background checks before a staff member starts working with children.

CPR / First Aid Certified

All of our teachers are certified in First Aid and CPR. In addition, we have numerous staff who are trained in medication administration and the use of Epi-Pens.

The EVJCC personnel have received training in security and safety measures for scenarios including possible medical issues and the oversight of children and adults who are under our care and supervision. Our vigilance is demonstrated with a 40-year plus safe school environment.  Read more about our safety policies and procedures.
