The Early Childhood Learning Center

Dr. Lorenzo Harris Jr. Early Childhood Learning Center

Bringing education, care, and support to local infants, toddlers, and their families.

The Dr. Lorenzo Harris Jr. Early Childhood Learning Center [ECLC] is conveniently located at 302 Atkins Ave in Asbury Park. It continues 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 features trained educators, age-appropriate learning, indoor and outdoor play areas, and an onsite kitchen that serves organic food choices. Initially, the ECLC focuses 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.
