About us

When it comes to your kids, nothing less than the highest standards will do. Our day care provides a safe environment for your child to explore his or her full potential. If you’re looking for a child care center that meets these stringent demands, look no further!

We want to promote personal development of your children to prepare them as best we can for the challenges that lie ahead in life. Our staff consists of experienced, certified and continually trained educators.

Early Learning Child Care began as part of a local agency in 1969 and was known as OnBoard Day Care. The agency’s home was at Fort Rodman in the southend of New Bedford and in 1982 OnBoard was dissolved and Early Learning Child Care, Inc. was formed as a non-profit corporation. In June of 1992, ELCC moved into the Maxfield Street location at the former Voke-Tech High School. The agency is governed by a Board of Directors where some of the best local leaders are leading our team.
