For 50 years, Montgomery Early Learning Centers (MELC) has developed, provided and advocated for high quality early childhood education and school age programs for all children. Over 1,400 children at 19 locations in Philadelphia and Montgomery counties participate in a MELC program. In addition, through our Professional Development Dimensions, we advocate for the continued training of educators and invest in creating professional development opportunities, provide technical assistance and maintain a variety of updated resources available to help thousands of teachers improve their practice.
