What makes Elim Children's Center UNIQUE?

Elim Children's Center (ECC) opened in May 1997 within Elim Care, a long term care facility, in Fargo. ECC is a small Christian facility with three classrooms and four full time teachers. While most of the day is spent in the classroom or outdoors we still have time for spontaneous and planned activities with the "grandmas and grandpas." We also have animals residing in our facility including; fish, cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, and chinchillas. No two days are ever the same. While working at Elim Children's Center you will experience a truly unique early learning environment.
