About the Early Learning Center

A great education with Edina Public Schools begins with our youngest learners! We are proud of the many early learning opportunities offered through our award-winning Edina Early Learning Center.

Edina’s Early Learning Center is so much more than a school! We’re a community where children learn, families bond, and parents grow as advocates and leaders.

You are your child’s first and most important teacher. We’re here to support you and your child from day one. We create spaces for your family to grow and give you tools and resources to parent with confidence. Building strong partnerships between home and school is a core value of Edina Public Schools and key to our success in fostering lifelong learning and education excellence. Family engagement helps build strong home to school connections and will have a positive impact on your child’s learning for years to come.

With access to all school district resources, including curriculum expertise, Early Childhood Screening, Early Childhood Special Education, tuition assistance, and more, we work toward the holistic development of your child.

We wish you and your family a wonderful experience at the Edina Early Learning Center and look forward to a long relationship with you as your child progresses through Edina Public Schools.
