LaToya Monroe, owner of Early Literacy Academy (ELA), along with her staff, dignitaries including Council President Darrell Clarke, State Senator Larry Farnese, State Sen. Anthony Williams,  Samantha Pearson, and Chief of Staff for State Representative Mary Isaacson were present to celebrate the opening of Early Literacy Academy’s newest early childhood education center, located at 215 Fairmount Ave in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia.

“We are so excited to be opening our new facility on Fairmount Ave, serving up to 144 children from 6 weeks to 5 years old.”, Monroe said. “We provide high-quality educational programming focusing on literacy and nurturing the creative genius in every child.

We strive to meet the physical, cognitive, social and emotional growth of each individual child in a caring and supportive atmosphere where relationships are at the heart of all we do.”

The grand opening ceremony included an overview of the educational program being shared by Ms. Monroe, remarks by the local and state elected officials present, as well as remarks from a current parent whose children are enrolled at Early Literacy Academy.  “I am so happy that I was able to enroll my children at ELA,” the parent, Ms. Laura Huth, said. “I could not be happier with the services and high level of care they provide my children. When they are here at ELA, I know I don’t have to worry.”
