St. Rita School Early Learning Center (the ELC), a ministry of Divine Mercy Parish, offers families in New Haven County an outstanding option for early childhood care and education. At the ELC, young children explore and create, and learn through age-appropriate activities that promote emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development.

The daily program, which includes art, music, math, science and physical activities, encourages respect for self and others, while helping each child develop creative abilities and enhancing self-help skills. We foster a close, personal working relationship between staff, child and parent, providing a secure environment that helps each child flourish and that makes the ELC your child’s home away from home.
