The Cesar Chavez Early Learning Center (CCELC) is an all-in-one campus designed to support families with children ages birth to 5 years. Located at Chavez Elementary, this first-of-its-kind center will transform the educational landscape in East San José by offering equitable access to quality early childhood programs for our youngest learners in the Mayfair community.

Unfortunately, too many children begin life with the odds stacked against them. Complex social, economic, and family challenges can create toxic levels of stress that damage the developing brain and threaten children’s lifelong health, development, and learning. These children face greater risk of entering school without the foundational physical, social, emotional, behavioral, and academic skills they need to succeed.

In partnership with Kidango, the CCELC will provide early care and education services, including full-day infant, toddler, and preschool care in a safe, nurturing learning environment where children can develop social, emotional and academic skills. The center will also provide after school care and summer school for children in transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten.
