ELC is a comprehensive National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited public pre-school program. It is designed to meet the needs of West Hartford children between the ages of three and five years old identified with speech and language, developmental, social, behavioral or academic delays. Students with special education needs are referred to the ELC from several sources: parents, community based pre-schools, the State of Connecticut Birth-to-Three Program, teacher, public and private agencies and pediatricians.

Morning and afternoon classes are offered four days per week. A five-day week, full-day program is provided for students on the Autism spectrum, who require an intensive educational program with a focus on Applied Behavior Analysis methodology.
