EARLY LEARNING INDIANA’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
At our Day Early Learning centers, we’ve opened our doors wider to serve the children of essential workers. If you’re an essential worker and need child care, please contact us. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to keep many children and families from accessing high-quality care, we continue to do all we can to support our teachers and the families we serve with professional development and out-of-class resources. We couldn’t do this work without the generous support of our families and donors. If you’d like to support our efforts, please consider donating today.
How is your county coming back stronger? Early Learning Indiana has identified providers by county who are eligible for Come Back Stronger funds. View the map to learn how your county’s providers are utilizing the Come Back Stronger Fund and the opportunities that exist to ensure your county comes back stronger.
We’re on a mission to ensure the highest level of early care and education for children in Indiana.
The Big Issue
Over 500,000 children in Indiana are under the age of five. In nearly 70 percent of Hoosier families with young children where all adults in the household are in the workforce, a child will spend some or most of her day being cared for, educated by and engaged by another adult. However, today, only 35 percent of those children attend a high-quality program.
As Indiana’s oldest and largest early childhood education nonprofit, Early Learning Indiana provides leadership, advocacy and early childhood education services to continually improve the early learning landscape in Indiana.
