Change is Coming to the ELC

Change is coming to the Early Learning Center!  The Lord has blessed Delmarva Christian Schools with increased enrollment, leading to the construction of a new 7,000 square foot facility on the Delmarva Christian Milton Campus in Milton, Delaware. The seven classrooms in the ELC Annex have been carefully designed to focus on student engagement,  safety with the use of burgeoning technology and drop off/pick up procedures, bathrooms in every classroom, and a wide-open design for play and growth.  COMING SOON!

The DCS Early Learning Center

The Early Learning Center (ELC) at the Delmarva Christian Milton Campus has been established to meet the educational, social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of students from 6 weeks to 3 years old. The environment of the program is conducive to positive growth and the development of our younger students. Delmarva Christian Schools believes learning is a process, and DCS wants to help your student learn how to find answers as much as know them.

Program Information

The Early Learning Center (ELC) is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. for students six weeks old through three years old.

The twelve-month, year-round program is broken into three groups of students: infants (6 weeks old through 12 months), toddlers, and three year olds.
