Early Learning Center Fund

This fund enables the Early Learning Center to support our areas of greatest need. Your gift may help replenish classroom supplies, provide supplementary coats, mittens, and boots for outdoor activities, offer enrichment events for family, or provide professional development training for staff.

Outdoor Learning Experiences Fund

The Early Learning Center outdoor learning space provides an intentionally designed outdoor environment for exploration and innovation for ELC children, families, and staff as well as our University partners. This “outside the walls of a school” approach expands the possibilities for learning in a space that honors nature and the community while communicating to everyone the value of learning in natural settings.
