Welcome

Pershing Early Learning Center is an educational environment designed to meet the needs of our youngest learners and their families.  We encourage learning for the child through explorational play, expanding personal experiences, and providing students with a literacy-rich environment.  By working together with parents, we are able to provide many DPS children with a successful preschool experience which meets their needs and prepares them for kindergarten.  Sarah Knuppel, Principal
