Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is that teaching should be more than transmitting facts and skills; it should teach children about learning itself, giving them the mental tools that will enable them to learn on their own.

We believe every child is a unique individual with special talents and capabilities and has immeasurable worth to self and society.

The Wells County Early Learning Center partners with parents to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that promotes a child’s emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development. We know that children’s experiences, both at home and at the ELC, are the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. No one can replace a parent but part of our job is to help a child feel loved.
