Serving 316 infants, toddlers & preschoolers

Through the partnership with Rutgers-Camden, LEAP families benefit from the services and programs of the Early Learning Research Academy (ELRA). ELRA is an early childhood development and research center with programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. The holistic model focuses on cognitive and socio-emotional development as important elements to address school readiness for urban children.

The mission of ELRA is to enhance the future school success of Camden City children from birth through age five by providing high-quality, research-based education and comprehensive wellness services while improving research and best practices in early childhood development and education.
