Jefferson ELC


Jefferson Early Learning Centeris home of Pauls Valley School District's youngest citizens, our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. Pauls Valley is a community committed to the educational excellence for all children. The Jefferson ELC staff provides a nurturing environment for each child and their families with our philosophy encompassing child-centered and family focused learning. Through a cooperative partnership between the Jefferson ELC staff and each child's family, natural curiosity and enthusiasm for learning will continue to grow.

On behalf of the faculty and staff I would like to extend an invitation for you to visit our school often. As partners, it is imperative we have your input, interaction and involvement in all areas of your child's education. Shared cooperation and expectations between home and school will play a valid role in your child's growth.
