The Early Childhood Learning Center

A New Early Childhood Learning Center is Coming Soon to Asbury Park’s Westside

Bringing education, care, and support to local infants, toddlers, and their families, the Early Childhood Learning Center will be a unique community asset.

The Backstory

The Early Childhood Learning Center [ECLC] will be conveniently located at 302 Atkins Ave in Asbury Park. It will continue Interfaith Neighbors’ support of the westside neighborhood by bringing safe and affordable education and care to our community’s youngest members, allowing parents to work, go to school, and care for extended family.

The facility will feature trained educators, age-appropriate learning, indoor and outdoor play areas, and an onsite kitchen that serves organic food choices. Initially, the ECLC will focus its efforts on teaching and caring for children ages 3 months to three years old. Supportive funding will allow the Learning Center to welcome all families, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Timeline

The ECLC is positioned to open its doors in late summer 2022.

Watch for the start of new construction this fall.
