The Loyola Early Learning Center (LELC) is a parish preschool daycare center and early childhood education program, rooted in a Catholic Jesuit tradition of personal care, learning, and spiritual growth. This high-quality preschool learning center located in Baltimore City serves early childhood boys and girls from all income levels all year round. LELC focuses on the holistic development of children: physical, emotional, cognitive, creative, social, behavioral, and spiritual. The full-day learning program, with an added emphasis on parent education and involvement, provides children with the foundation for academic and life success.
