Essential Skills for Every Hoosier Child
Who We Are
Early Learning Indiana is on a mission to ensure every child is empowered with essential skills to be successful in kindergarten and beyond. We do this by operating high-quality early learning centers, helping families find quality child care, partnering with teachers and providers to improve program quality and advocating for greater access to early educational opportunities for all Hoosier families.
Rooted in a Rich History with Our Eyes on the Future
Early Learning Indiana is the state’s oldest and largest early childhood education nonprofit. For more than 100 years, Early Learning Indiana was known as Day Nursery. Under that name, we spent more than a century building a reputation as central Indiana’s standard-bearer for excellent child care.
