Since 1971, the Early Learning Center at the East Valley JCC has provided high-quality preschool and daycare in a safe, nurturing environment. 


Infant & Toddler Care
(6 weeks-16 months)

We’re committed to supporting you on your journey as a new parent – and we thank you for that opportunity

Our low infant-to-teacher ratio  sets the stage for individualized care and building trust and emotional security with your baby. Our qualified teachers know the importance of early brain development and use this knowledge in their everyday interactions.

At the youngest stage, lesson plans are created that are individualized to your child’s growth and development and you provide the daily schedule to meet your child’s specific needs for napping, feeding and diapering.

The ELC program begins at 6 weeks and goes through Pre-Kindergarten.

Contact ECLC director Pam Morris to learn more or call 480-897-0588.

All of our teachers have the following: Level 1 fingerprint clearance cards, first aid and CPR training that is renewed every 2 years, a security background check that we perform at the JCC, and at least 18 hours of continuing education credits. Many of our teachers have degrees ranging from a CDA, AA and BA in Early Childhood Education. Read more about our safety policies and procedures.
