Classes at ELCC

Class Offerings

Our goal is to offer classes each year in sequence. Practically this means that if a child participates in a science this year, the subsequent science will be offered next year. Class sizes and Teachers are indicated after class name.

The hour by hour class schedule can be found here

Nursery, Preschool, and Kindergarten

Nursery –

There is no fee for ELCC's nursery. However, we do ask that you still register your nursery aged children. This helps us be sure that we have enough volunteers.

Our nursery is located on the second floor, across from the office. It is staffed by parents of children 2 and under and any volunteers. Parents of nursery aged children will be given a schedule at the beginning of the school year, but are encouraged to coordinate (with one another) activities like sing along songs and snack or nap times. Each participating parent is asked to watch the nursery for 1 hour. Nursery children eat lunch with parents and need to be escorted to the cafeteria. See Sherry Swick with any questions.

Preschool Classes –

Our preschool classes are designed for children who will be 3 by 12/31/2020, but are not yet ready for kindergarten. Class sizes and activities will depend upon the number children in this age range and their parent's participation. Children who are 2 1/2 are often permitted to move into Preschool second semester if they can listen carefully, follow directions, share and are not a disturbance to the class.
