About the ELC

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.
