About Our Elim Daycare

    Elim Family Daycare provides high quality, developmentally appropriate programs to children. Our qualified and skillful teachers encourage children to learn and grow in a homelike environment. Our programs are based on various aspects of reggio emilia and montessori. We believe children are able to pursue their own interests and revisit them to build upon ideas at their own pace in a high quality environment.

    We believe that children learn through experiences and play from the environment. Our preschool programs provide a trustworthy, nurturing and safe environment where children can build a variety of experiences. Our preschool programs value and respect each child as a person. We also recognize the uniqueness of each child. We are dedicated to supporting each child to reach their full potential in their emotional, social, physical, intellectual and cognitive development.

    We believe that positive and strong connections between children, parents and teachers are beneficial to children's development. Our preschool programs encourage all adults and children to create meaningful relationships.

Message from Jiae

Hello! After graduating from Cal State LA University with an early child development degree, I worked as a master teacher in several preschools for more than 12 years. After experiencing the impact each environment had on children, I decided to open a dayca re with my own educational setup and philosophy. I understand how important the early childhood period is in an individual’s life. I will provide an opportunity to be exposed to a variety of activities based on a different topic each week.

Message from Miyoung

Currently, our children are highly exposed to food additives. Food intake during early childhood is very important because it greatly affects not only the health of our children but also their growth. We will provide high quality and organic food that will help our children grow healthy.

Message from Joyce

My name is Joyce Cho and I am happy to be a part of the Elim family from Jan 2023. I look forward to building up precious time and memories with your children and family! A little bit about my background, I majored in Christian Education at a seminary in Korea and I have spent a lot of time with children while I worked as a Sunday school teacher. I love spending time with the children, and as I wanted to study about the children deeply, I became interested in childhood education. The more I studied early childhood education, the more I realized that early childhood is really important in a person's life. I have put a lot of effort and experience into becoming a professional teacher accordingly. Over the past 10 years I have been educating children while placed in multiple settings like a daycare, kindergarten, and church. I have experienced happiness from the children I have built meaningful relationships with and seeing their growth has validated how meaningful my role is in this field. I want to become a teacher who can help children be happier. If you have any more questions about me, please feel free to ask! Thank you very much and I am looking forward to being in the life of your child.
