What Parents are Saying About our Early Learning Programs

This program has been fundamental to our child and myself as a parent. It brings more than child care but awareness of my child's growth. It's professional with their requirements needed and their amazing updates I receive from them. I am comfortably satisfied with the trust that's been grown. My daughter is happy and so I'm I because she loves going to the after school program.
Richland ELC Preschool Parent

We love our ELC boys and girls club! My kiddos feel safe, and cared for everyday they are there! Itโ€™s really nice to have that sense of security when dropping them off that your children are enjoyed and not just simply tolerated! Theyโ€™re learning and growing and thriving everyday they get to attend!
Richland ELC Preschool Parent

I cannot thank the Boys & Girls Club enough for the impact that they've made in my daughter's life. She went from being delayed and struggling with social skills, to coming home singing her ABCs and can't stop talking about her friends. My daughter has done a 180 in a good way, and a lot of that is owed to the amazing teachers in the program.
