The Robert and Adele Schiff Early Learning Center is housed in the Oyler School in Cincinnati’s Lower Price Hill community. The Schiff location is an integral partner in this innovative Community Learning Center. A Community Learning Center is a “place and a set of partnerships between the school itself and other community resources. In these schools, there is an integrated focus on academics, family support, health and social services, youth and community development, all which lead to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities.” (Coalition for Community Schools)
The Schiff location opened in the fall of 2012. We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and holds a 5-Star rating from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Step Up to Quality. The center offers a strong educational program in an environment reflective of the qualities of home for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
Our center serves children and families from Lower Price Hill and the surrounding areas. CELC and its centers are part of the United Way and the agency contracts with the Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services and the Ohio Department of Education to provide services to families who qualify for assistance based on their income.
Located next to this Learning Center is the Schiff Nature Play Scape. This outdoor green space features a stage area, planting boxes for children to grow gardens, a hillside for climbing, and other beautiful, natural areas.
