East Side Learning Center's Mission

The mission of ESLC is to provide the highest quality of care to the children and families of Concord and surrounding community. This takes place through a developmentally appropriate environment that is based on best practices in early childhood and afterschool. Our focus is to create an environment where children, families and staff want to be a part of.


Program Philosophy

ESLC provides a warm, inviting and stimulating environment where the needs of each child can be met. Our program is designed in such a way that we can respond to the needs, interests and maturity levels of each child, and provide quality care for them and their families. We rely on mutual respect and trust with families to meet all children's needs and strive to encourage children to reach their maximum potential.

Our program provides extensive opportunities for children to fully explore their surroundings and to grow and develop to their maximum potential at their own rate. Through a balance of teacher directed and child initiated experiences, staff encourage opportunities for the children in all developmental domains throughout all content areas.
