The Center for Early Education was founded in 1939 by a group of professional psychoanalysts who were interested in respecting the inner world of children. Since then the School has become regarded as one of the top elementary schools in the nation. It has been noted for a high "feeder" rate into Harvard-Westlake School.
More than 50% of the student body during the 2016-17 school years was non-white. According to Town & Country magazine, "The school looks for diversity, in the hopes of a student body that represents the full spectrum of LA's varied population."
The current campus consists of three major buildings, with classrooms, a library, a community center, a gym, an innovation center and additional indoor and outdoor instructional space. The school is currently undergoing a major campus renovation that will include more classrooms and sports facilities. The expansion is scheduled to be completed in early 2020.
