The Pennie Z. Davis Early Learning Center offers the best early childhood experience available for children ages six-weeks through five years. Our warm home-like environment, the region’s most experienced staff, an extraordinary facility, and innovative programs provide an excellent first learning experience.

The Pennie Z. Davis Early Learning Center (ELC) is a place where children can develop healthy independence, positive social interactions and strong thinking skills in a developmentally and educationally appropriate Judaic environment…a place where they can explore and play, and make independent choices while feeling secure and warmly nurtured.

Relationships are at the core of everything we do here at the Pennie Z. Davis Early Learning Center.  The relationships between child and educator, family and educator, educators and administrators, and educators and their peers is central to the success of our school.  When you join our team, you are joining a family that is working to support you, to help you grow, and to help you reach your career goals.

The ELC has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) – the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children. NAEYC accreditation is a quality-improvement system that uses a set of 10 research-based standards to recognize and drive quality-improvement in high-quality early learning environments. NAEYC-accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years.
