What is Early Childhood Education?

Palouse Industries provides services to children and their families through its Early Learning Services (ELS) programs. ELS believes that all children benefit from a language-rich, loving environment that supports the unique learning style and interests of each individual child. Our goal is to provide for the optimum development of each child we serve. Parents are our partners in assuring that their child is appropriately nurtured and challenged. Our programs include:

Boy with down syndrome
