What We Do

Orfalea Early Learning Center @ SBCC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The center is also a laboratory school for the training of SBCC students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Department. The center serves children 4 months to 5 years or age or until they enter kindergarten.

In the spring of 2000, the center received a generous donation from the Orfalea Family Foundation and our name was changed to Kinko’s Early Learning Center (KELC).
