Tour Early Learning Community for 2024-2025

Exploring different schooling options for your child in the new year? Come and see what children need to become critical thinkers and joyous, self-directed learners at the Early Learning Community (ELC)!

As we dive into the 2024-2025 enrollment season, we are excited for folks from our community, at Pacific University and beyond, to visit our school and learn more about our Preschool to 4th grade programs. We anticipate openings in each grade for the 2024-2025 school year, but especially in 1st through 4th. 

The staff at the ELC invites you to learn more about our new enrollment process: 

  • Join our waitlist
  • Tour to learn about program logistics
  • Visit with your child, and additional opportunities based on age group/grade level.

We've even added additional tour dates/times!

If you're interested in visiting, your next step is to reserve your time slot for a tour. Please note, because of existing classroom capacity our daytime tours are limited to eight people. For that reason, please sign up for each person attending and please try to limit attendees from the same household to no more than two people.

Evening tours have no space constraints, so if you’d like to bring more folks, please choose one of those options. As a reminder, these tours are going to be full of information and therefore just for adults. We will have links to sign up for daytime visiting options available at the end of your tour.
