Encino Presbyterian Childrens Center

At Encino Presbyterian Children's Center, we believe each child is a unique individual.
We strive to provide a loving, nurturing, and creative environment for all children.
Our philosophy is based upon the principle that play is a significant mode of learning.
In our curriculum planning we strive to provide developmentally appropriate experiences that encourage growth cognitively, emotionally, socially, creatively, physically and spiritually leading to a strong sense of self-esteem within each child.
We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy and child-friendly.
Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels.
EPCC`s learning centers allow children the opportunity to explore, to experience, and most importantly... to succeed.
Various centers include areas for creative expression through art, music and crafts; role playing, dramatic play and socialization; storytelling; story writing; language skills; and the development of pre-reading and pre-math skills.
The strength of the EPCC program is the experience, expertise and dedication of our staff. Throughout the U.S., the average annual turnover rate at child care centers is 40%.
At EPCC our turnover rate has been less than 12% over the past 15 years! We support our teachers with ongoing training and resources.
Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and are truly dedicated.

We LOVE EPCC!! My son runs into class excited every morning and never wants to leave at pick up time. The teachers are all so friendly and caring. I can't say enough good things about EPCC I just wish it went all the way through High School!
