The Center for Early Education is a private primary school located in West Hollywood, Los Angeles County, California.

History[edit]

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.[2] 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.[3]

Demographics[edit]

More than 50% of the student body during the 2016-17 school years was non-white.[4][5] 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."[6]

Facilities[edit]

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.[5] The expansion is scheduled to be completed in early 2020.[5][7]

2021 data breach[edit]

In February 2021 The Hollywood Reporter reported that hackers leaked confidential staff salaries and parent contact information of the school in emails with racist, sexist and homophobic language.[8]
