The Center for Early Education began as a playgroup for children in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles in 1939, founded by psychoanalysts who had recently immigrated from Europe. They created the school as a place that respected the inner world of the child and the program based on principles of child development. At a time when preschool education was in its infancy, CEE’s founders pioneered a school dedicated to the needs of young children. The Center moved to its West Hollywood location in 1946. It was not only a thriving nursery school, but for 44 years until 1991, it also included The College for Developmental Studies, a teaching college that trained generations of early childhood educators. In 1971, The Center for Early Education expanded to an Elementary program.

In 2020, the school completed a multi-year Campus Enhancement Project with two new classroom buildings and the opening of a new gym and playfield among other enhancements.

Today, The Center has grown to a thriving Toddler-6th grade program of 540 children that still holds true to its founding values.
