Early Childhood Services


We believe that children learn best in an environment that is safe, nurturing and child centered. Our teachers provide daily experiences that stimulate cognitive, social and emotional growth and development in each individual.

The programs provided by Early Childhood Services have been carefully planned to meet the goals, expectations and policies of the University of California, the California Department of Education-Child Development Division, the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs and ECS's staff and parents.

Mission Statement

The mission of UCR ECS is to enable parents to reach their educational and professional goals and to support children to reach their full potential in all developmental areas. ECS supports the university’s teaching, research and community service goals by providing the children of students, staff, faculty and community members with a healthy, safe and inclusive learning environment. Children are nurtured, encouraged and supported by our staff to enable them to reach the next level in their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.
