Nestucca Valley Early Learning Center
Where Great Minds Are Born
At Nestucca Valley Early Learning Center our mission is to provide quality, reliable and affordable childcare, preschool and Kindergarten before and after-school care programs in our community.
Early Learning Center
One Step Ahead
Nestucca Valley Early Learning Center adheres to a holistic approach of early childhood education. When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave our Early Childhood Education Center, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.
Nestucca Valley Head Start Program, a part of the Community Action Team of Tillamook, Clatsop & Columbia Counties is also a vital partner right in our building! Information and applications for this program can be found here:

We Love Our Kids!
The provisions of quality childcare should be the responsibility of our entire community as it supports the next generation and assists in economic development in our area. To this end, our center represents a strong collaborative effort between families and organizations that support the care, nurturing and education of young children.
Working with the parents is also very important, to make sure the bridge from our "home" to theirs! One on one meetings with staff and parents are welcome.
