Early Learning Center

The ELC offers programs for a high-quality early childhood education program for toddlers and preschoolers, ages 18 months to 5 years old in the Metrowest area. The core program runs from 9:00 am to 12:45 pm; early drop starting at 8:00 am and extended hours until 5:00 pm are also available. As well, we offer an array of afterschool enrichment programs such as art, music, sports and yoga.

 ELC fosters a lifelong love of learning by celebrating each child's natural sense of wonder and curiosity. All children are provided with a safe and nurturing environment in which to develop their social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills. Our goal is to provide a child-centered emergent curriculum, which provides a strong foundation for learning while celebrating the traditions, customs and values of Judaism. Our preschool draws students from Wayland, Sudbury, Framingham, Weston, Natick and the surrounding areas.
