From the Parent of a Preschooler: “Our daughter had previously been enrolled in a Montessori that was not close to home. We were so excited when we saw CELC opened in our own neighborhood. We were hoping this would be a lateral move for our child. However, this school was exponentially greater. We have been so pleased with the care our child receives at CELC. I cannot imagine a better, safer place for her to learn and grow in. Thanks CELC!”
