Early Learning Institute

The MCPK Early Learning Institute (ELI) is the professional learning arm of the school dedicated to improving the quality of local pre-schools by providing hands-on, practical and affordable learning for teachers, administrators, college students and caregivers. Currently, the ELI is a community resource offering at least two events per year: A winter event geared towards children and parents/caregivers where workshops are offered by experts in STEAM-based learning; and a second, professional lunch and learning, where early childhood educators, administrators and college students spend time in our classrooms and then in discussion with our teachers and administrators. 
We also offer learning tours of the school and aspects of our program upon request. Please email Molly Brennan This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are interested in scheduling a tour for yourself or a group.
