Our Roots

Caring for Children for More Than 50 Years

AELC has been serving the same community for over 50 years!  ANDRUS Early Learning Center was formerly Eastchester Child Development Center (ECDC) which began in 1967 and operated under the auspices of Family and Community Services, Inc. (FCS).  After a merger in 2007, ECDC joined the ANDRUS family of programs and became ANDRUS Early Learning Center.  The program has been within a few miles of our current location over 50 years and moved to the location in 2011. 

AELC is a program of ANDRUS, an organization which has nurtured hope in children since 1928.  It is worth it to take a few minutes to learn about the fascinating history of ANDRUS.

ANDRUS' Mission:

ANDRUS nurtures social and emotional well-being in children, families and communities by delivering a broad range of vital services and by providing research, training and innovative program models that promote the standard of excellence for professional performance in and beyond our service community.  

ANDRUS' Vision:
