Early Learning Indiana exists to provide leadership, advocacy, and early childhood education services to continually improve the early learning landscape in Indiana.
But we can’t do it alone. That’s why we’ve partnered with United Way of Central Indiana, whose commitment to improving education and child care in Indiana is well known. And it’s why we seek partnerships with others who share our commitment to early education in Indiana. Collaboration is critical to our success—and to the success of the children we serve.
Under the name Day Nursery, we provided Central Indiana families with high-quality child care and preschool education services for more than 100 years. Today we’re doing the same—only now, our schools are known as Day Early Learning Centers.
All of our centers maintain the highest level of accreditation. Our activity-based curriculum inspires life-long learning in children. Our highly trained staff and small class sizes ensure every child receives attention from credentialed education professionals. And our commitment to diversity is unrivaled.
Child Care Answers is an Early Learning Indiana organization serving both parents and child care providers.
To parents, we’re a valuable referral resource dedicated to helping them find child care services that meet their needs. To providers and educators, we’re a resource for professional development, teacher training, licensing, mentoring, and much more.
