A PATH TO LEARNING FROM CRADLE TO COLLEGE
Early Learning Center Coming Soon
On December 21, 2022, our Early Learning Center facility was vandalized beyond repair. We are diligently working on renovations for a new location, but until then, the Early Learning Center is closed.
We will continue to keep all parents updated, but send us a direct message if you have any questions. We will do our best to provide you with answers and updates as they are shared with us.
– Dr. Tonia Gilbert, Upper Room KC CEO
Upper Room KC’s Early Learning Center (ELC) offers an affordable option for child care and Pre-K prep. Serving infants through Pre-K, our ELC is state-accredited and part of a Pre-K co-op that prepares students for their transition into Kindergarten. With age and developmentally-appropriate programming, Upper Room KC’s ELC parents can rely on a continuous education where students explore the full range of their potential from an early age.
We create a path that places lifelong learning within reach.
As a Missouri State licensed child care center since 2020, we embrace the health, safety, growth, and development of children through a regulatory process that ensures we meet the highest standards of quality.
We support our diverse community and their needs.
With two dedicated areas — one for infants, and one for Pre-K — our ELC supports language, communication, cognitive, creative, and physical development.
We educate children and empower working families.
While our ELC is one of the most affordable in Kansas City, we also advocate for families that might qualify for state subsidies with a dedicated resource to help navigate the application process.
