Stevens Early Learning Center
Stevens Early Learning Center is a new DCPS school opening in August 2020. Stevens is DCPS’ first standalone Early Learning Center with DCPS PK3 and PK4 and a 0-3 program offered in partnership with a Community Based Organization. Through this partnership, Stevens will offers a unique opportunity to educate our earliest learners in a model devoted specifically to zero-to-five-year-olds. DCPS is excited to reopen the historic Thaddeus Stevens building with a full modernization.
Stevens ELC will pilot a new preference for families that meet the District's at-risk definition. Learn more HERE (Stevens Priority Seat).
