Message from the Director

Welcome to the ECLC!



Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Zayed University ECLC! We are excited to have you join our academic family. As early childhood professionals, we believe the work we do will assist in providing your child with a strong foundation and good academic start. Our curriculum is research based and focuses on encouraging children through specifically designed play experiences. The ECLC also has the distinction of being a lab school where new ideas and research around early childhood education are constantly being implemented and discussed.

I truly enjoy working with our staff in the ECLC and am inspired by their dedication. Our team is always hard at work creating an engaging and exciting learning environment for your children. As you walk through the center throughout the semester; we encourage you to spend some time exploring the opportunities and experiences on offer. This includes our parent resource space where you can check out materials related to child development and our children’s art studio where displays of creative experiences will be on exhibit

We understand there are many wonderful early childhood learning environments available for you to choose so we thank you for selecting the ECLC.  We welcome your children to a new academic journey and are excited to begin making memories. My door is always open to address any questions, comments or concerns that families may have.


Dr. Asia Foster
