Welcome to the Hamilton Early Learning Center.  My name is Ben Burns and I have been the principal since 2018.  Prior to this I was an elementary associate principal for two years in Sun Prairie, WI.  I have a background in psychology, childhood development, and leadership.

I am proud to say that Hamilton Early Learning Center is a choice school that offers a strong academic curriculum.  We are also a 45-15 school with a “year round” calendar and three intersession breaks throughout the year. Through a community partnership with the Boys & Girls Club we are able to offer after school opportunities as well.

Beginning in 2018 we have been officially designated as a Community School.  As a community school we still work reactively to meet the needs of individual students, but we are also focused on establishing community partnerships to proactively meet the needs of our entire community.

If you have any concerns or comments, feel free to contact me either by phone at 789-7695 or through e-mail, bburns@lacrossesd.org
