The ELC is in session from September through May. We follow a traditional school year calendar, including winter break, spring break and other Federal holidays. There is no childcare after or before school.

We use a team teaching strategy in a large multi-aged classroom enriching the curriculum with art, music, gardening and an integrated Spanish program.
We have a 3-year curriculum. The culmination is a kindergarten program (the Rainbow Leaders group).

Other programs:
- We have an extra-curricular one-hour supervised lunch program which is $10.
- An after-school Spanish program (schedule below).
- We also have a summer Spanish program for 4 weeks (two 2-week sessions) in June and July from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The five day preschool program has two sessions:
Morning session- 8:30-11:15 a.m.
Afternoon session- 12:30-3:15 p.m. (Mondays: 12:45-3:30 p.m.)

*After-school Spanish program (Monday-Friday 3:30-5:30 p.m. or part-time)

Starting in 2012-2013 school year, the kindergarten program will have one five-hour (1/2-day) session from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 pm, a full-day session from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and an extended day session from 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. (includes after-school Spanish).
