A Creative, Hands-on, Fun, Pre-K Laboratory School
Our Preschool, the Early Learning Center (ELC), offers a full day program and half day program.
The ELC is nationally accredited by the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and state licensed half-day and full-day preschool programs. The ELC preschool provides an appropriate early childhood experience for Warner Pacific University students who are majoring in Education or related fields of study as teaching assistants.
The ELC also provides, under the guidance of a director and qualified teachers, a play-based, anti-bias, Christ-centered preschool program for young children in the community. The ELC does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation or gender expression.
Believing that the family is the child’s primary environment of learning, the ELC offers opportunities for parent participation, education, and support.
If you have any questions or are interested in enrolling your child in the Early Learning Center please contact Raquel Dewitt at 503.517.1081. The ELC is located on the Warner Pacific University campus on the corner of SE Division St. and SE 70th Ave. The mailing address is 2219 SE 68th Ave, Portland, OR 97215.
