The Early Learning Institute is dedicated to providing and promoting developmental services, education and support to young children, their families and their community.
In 1999, ELI was created to provide and promote developmental services, education and support to young children, their families and the community at large. At the time, we were primarily serving children with special needs and their families. But one of our greatest strengths has been our ability to create programs to meet the changing needs of our community. So now, while Early Intervention remains our largest program, ELI services also include Parent Support, Playgroups, Therapeutic Support Services, Screening & Assessment Services and Behavioral Consultation Services.
