Early Learning Center

The Early Learning Center (ELC), located in the Children’s Department, is a unique space for kids from birth through second grade to develop the early learning skills they need to be successful in school. Important early learning activities like letter, number, and color recognition, sequencing, and sight words are integrated into one themed exhibit that gives kids lots of opportunities for imaginative play and gross and fine motor skill development. With a fire truck, grocery store, post office and more, the ELC is a colorful, interactive place where kids can discover the joy of learning – right here in Waukegan!

The Early Learning Center is generously sponsored by North Shore Gas.
