Hobe Sound Early Learning Center


The Hobe Sound Early Learning Center has been serving children and families in Hobe Sound and surrounding areas since 1962. Our programs and services have evolved over the years but our quality and commitment to early childhood development remains the forefront of everything we do. Currently HSELC is serving 140 children ages 1-5. HSELC is proud to be a Conscious Discipline School that provides our children with not only the educational tools needed, but the social and emotional development so they will be successful in school and in life.

We engage with families in multiple ways and provide parents the opportunity to gain experience on how to advocate for their children as soon as they enter kindergarten and through their K-12 experience.

HSELC’s impact extends beyond the walls of the school, providing a catalyst for change that assists in bridging the gap between what we know and what we do in early education. We demonstrate to legislators, business leaders, philanthropists, policymakers, parents, and others what high quality, well-implemented care and early education can do for all children regardless of their background.

HSELC implements the latest science, research, and evidenced based practices to ensure that all children who attend our center build the skills they need to arrive at kindergarten safe, healthy, eager to learn, and ready for school. We keep class size small and teacher-child ratios low to ensure individualized care and instruction for every child who attends our center.

HSELC offers children and families the best environment possible for infants and young children to feel comfortable, nurtured, safe and inspired to grow learn and develop. Research shows that physical space and light allow babies, toddlers, and preschoolers to explore, learn and develop. Our classrooms and safe playgrounds are comfortable spaces that promote bonds between our teachers and young children. These spaces support interactive learning as teachers and children observe each other reading, acting out stories, creating artwork, counting, or conducting simple experiments together.
