From The Center for Early Education

The Center for Early Education (CEE) is an independent, co‑ed, day school located in West Hollywood, California for children Toddlers through grade six.

CEE began in 1939 when a group of professional psychoanalysts started a playgroup for their young children at a home in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. At a time when preschool education was in its infancy, the school’s founders were passionate about respecting the inner world of the child and developing an early childhood education based on nurturing each child's natural developmental pace.

Today, The Center for Early Education is a socio-economically and culturally diverse independent school. At The Center, our mission guides everything that we do. We work to ultimately graduate students who are joyful, resilient, life-long learners. Our philosophy combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging academic program that addresses the developmental needs of each child.
