As of May 20th, 2024, "Bear Care" will become

"TigerCub Village at the ELC" as part of a program revamp. This

renaming marks a pivotal moment in the center's evolution,

signaling a renewed commitment to excellence and innovation in

early childhood education.


The decision to rebrand the center reflects a comprehensive revamp of

its programs and services, designed to better meet the evolving needs

of families and provide an enriched learning experience for young

children. Under its new identity, "TigerCub Village at the ELC"

promises to build upon the strong foundation established by "Bear

Care", while introducing fresh initiatives and enhancements to foster

holistic development and academic success.  This transformation

reaffirms the center's position as a leader in early childhood education

and sets the stage for continued excellence in the years to come.
