Welcome to the Early Childhood Center! Our wonderful school is your entry into Elmwood Park Community School District 401. The Early Childhood Center offers preschool and kindergarten programs to residents of Elmwood Park.
Our staff is dedicated to providing a high quality learning environment for your child. Early childhood education is a social as well as academic endeavor. Our center implements research based curriculum approved by the State of Illinois Department of Education, in a warm, caring and friendly atmosphere. As partners in your child’s education, I encourage you to spend quality time with your children, reading and engaged in thoughtful conversation.
