About ELDC

The EARLY LEARNING and DEVELOPMENT CENTER is a private, not-for-profit preschool and child care center. Our Greenwood Center first opened in August of 1981. With the success of the Greenwood Center and the growing need for high quality, nurturing child care and early education in the Seattle area, President Ian Hyde opened the Broadview Center in 1992. 

Ever since, parents have enjoyed ELDC's exceptional programs which provide a safe and nuturing environment while promoting the development of their children.
