“Our daughter, Joanna, started at the ELC when she was about 7 months old. It was a big deal for us to trust her to any place, but the ELC made us feel welcome and safe. The staff was friendly and professional, and her teachers always gave us an update of how she did every day. Over the years (6 years in total), we moved through the ranks into new classrooms with new teachers. Joanna was a very shy girl in her early years, and parting with her in the morning was often difficult, especially when she first moved to a new classroom. Her teachers were very understanding and helpful.”Ling Liu

Engagement and collaboration with the academic and research programs of the University of Delaware and the broader community promotes innovative and reflective practices.
