EDUCATIONAL SERVICE PARTNERS

Educator’s committed to helping our youth & adults succeed

jumpstart

early learning

Jumpstart is a child care center facility which provides day care services for all children. Children who experience quality early education and child care in Jumpstart Early Learning Center Llc in the city of Erie receive long term benefits. They have better math, language and social skills as they enter school, and, as they grow older in the county of Erie, state of Pennsylvania, they will require less special education and will progress further in school.
