Early Learning Institute (ELI), incorporated in 1982, is a Palo Alto-based organization founded to increase learning opportunities for young children. Before offering services to the public, its founder, Dr. Charles Bernstein, and other researchers spent several years conducting research on child development and creating what is now known as the "HeadsUp! Approach" to early learning. This research base and the resulting HeadsUp! philosophy have served as the anchor for all subsequent development efforts and they continue to distinguish ELI from other organizations offering children's services. ELI operates child development centers in Palo Alto, North San Jose, and Pleasanton. They borrow from the best model programs and make use of the most recent educational research. The infant-toddler and twos programs use play and learning games to help lay the necessary foundation of all future learning. The preschool program employs a modified Montessori curriculum and incorporates art, music, and imaginative play into the traditional emphasis on practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, science, and cultural activities. Emerson School and Hacienda School combine a Montessori curriculum with the most recent advances in language, mathematics, and science curricula to craft an accelerated, yet in-depth program for first through eighth graders. The two schools, in Palo Alto and Pleasanton respectively, are conveniently located near the HeadsUp! child development centers.
