Welcome to the Pendleton Early Learning Center – Home of the Little Bucks

Welcome to the Pendleton Early Learning Center! We are excited to have your family join us to create an excellent school environment in our beautiful location. The first day of kindergarten is one of the most memorable days in your child’s life, and I want them to be the first of many rewarding school experiences.

The Pendleton Early Learning Center will provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment that promotes active learning with high expectations for each student. Our caring staff is committed to the development of each child academically, emotionally, socially and physically. Individual student needs will be met and developmentally appropriate activities will be provided to help your child achieve his or her full potential and establish a solid foundation for lifelong learning.

The partnership among students, staff, parents and the community is very important. I encourage your active involvement in our school, as many exciting programs and activities will be planned throughout the year. We are very excited to have your child begin their educational journey at the Pendleton Early Learning Center as we look forward to a wonderful school year full of learning opportunities! Together, we can enjoy watching your child learn, grow and develop.
