History and Programs

A walking tour describing the wonders of nature.

MCELC History

The Monadnock Community Early Learning Center was started in 1970 by a group of concerned men and women seeking quality child care in Peterborough. In 2003, the Board of Directors revised our name to Monadnock Community Early Learning Center (MCELC) to better reflect the educational services we provide.

We are grateful for our strong community support!

MCELC Programs

It is a privilege to be a part of a child’s life. We strive to provide an environment in which children can experience the excitement, the wonder, and joy of growing up. Every child is treated with respect and their individuality is celebrated. Our qualified teachers provide all age groups with a developmentally, age appropriate curriculum which includes physical, cognitive, and social development skills as well as age appropriate academic skills and creative play.
