Welcome to the Franklin Pierce Early Learning Center!

Welcome to the Franklin Pierce Early Learning Center 2017-18!

The Early Learning Center is in full operation at our newly remodeled facility located at 12223 A Street South. We are excited to have a permanent home! It is both state of art and beautiful with impressive heating/cooling systems, hi-tech electronics, new furnishings, a functional and safe outdoor play area, and color coordinated with a jungle theme throughout.  It is comfortable, full of light, and most importantly, child-friendly.  The students in all of our preschool programs: Head Start, ECEAP, Community Preschool, Special Education, Title 1 and High Needs love their new environment.
It's a great place to learn and work.

We are a Kids At Hope school. We believe that ALL children are capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS! We are also a center that uses research-based teaching strategies and methods to give your child the best methods and opportunities for a jump-start to their Kindergarten year and beyond.

You'll find that our Office staff are ready and available to support and assist you. They are:
     Tricia Allen, Office Manager
     Tami McLean, Office Assistant
     Carol Miller,  Assistant Director of Early Learning
     Sandy Dickson, Head Start/ECEAP Coordinator
