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. We adhere to four guiding initiatives:
- We operate high-quality child care centers.
- We help families find quality child care.
- We partner with teachers and providers to improve program quality.
- We advocate for greater access to early educational opportunities for all Hoosier families.
The mission of Early Learning Indiana is to ensure the highest level of early care and education for children in Indiana.
We strive for excellence, maintaining the highest standards for the education, development, protection, and care of young children.
We commit to supportive relationships, the foundation for all of our work with children, families and each other.
We work together, recognizing that providing the highest level of service to young children requires collaboration and partnership.
We treat everyone with respect, strengthening the bonds that bring us together, define our culture, and allow us to lead in the wider community.
Rooted in the Past.
Ready for the Future.
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.
