CHILDREN PLAYING
All ELCs are fully licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.  Our national, research-based curriculum promotes emotional, social and physical development.  Meals and nutritious snacks (USDA standard) provide your child with more than enough energy to learn and discover.

University Heights is a Texas Rising Center and we also participate in the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Texas School Ready Project. Our Creative Curriculum helps prepare young children for Kindergarten, and our site is currently in the process of applying for national accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

The YWCA University Heights ELC is only open to UTEP Students, Faculty and Staff. This helps provide the unique experience of going to “school” right near the UTEP campus.
