Mission Statement

Delmarva ELC is a licensed facility maintained for the purpose of serving our community by providing parents the peace of mind that their child is well cared for in a loving, nurturing and safe learning environment. We also wish to enrich the children we serve by providing positive learning experiences they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. Our goal is to be the best provider of childcare services in the community we service. We intend to achieve these goals by always providing on going education and training to our staff members. All employees are required to complete classes to enhance their knowledge of early childhood development and educational techniques.


We believe that each child is a special and unique individual. Sensitivity to a child’s needs in all areas including social, emotional, intellectual, and physical factors is necessary to properly serve each child’s special needs. Developmentally appropriate activities are designed for each age group to help children enjoy successful learning.
