Friends ELC will CLOSE on Thanksgiving, November 26, 2020.  We plan to reopen either when a vaccination is available for our students and staff OR the Ohio Health Advisory Alert Level has dropped and remained at a level that indicates low community spread and risk.  We will announce our reopening date here so please check back.

Purpose and Goals

Friends Early Learning Center (Friends ELC), is a full service, state-licensed child care and preschool committed to excellence in early care and education for children birth – 5 years of age.
We are pleased to provide parents living in the suburbs East of Cleveland a safe place for their children during the busy work week Monday thru Friday from 7:00 a.m. thru 5:30 p.m. Our program is consistent with the National Educational School Readiness goals to contribute to your child’s success as they prepare for kindergarten. Our commitment to offering quality childcare and schooling has been our first priority since 1981.

We strive to be the child care center and school of choice for providing state recognized excellent care, sharing Jesus Christ through words and actions, and providing a complete educational program geared to the needs and development of each individual child.

We have six classrooms for three different age groups.

Our Infant classrooms include the Infant Nursery for ages 6 weeks-12 months and Toddler Nursery for 12-18 months
Our Toddler classrooms include the Toddler Ones for ages 18-24 months and the Toddler Twos classrooms for ages 24 months-3 years
Our Preschoolers are placed in either the K3 class or the K4 class for the school year based on their age and when they anticipate entering Kindergarten.
