Every Hoosier child should have access to quality early education.

Brighter Futures for Hoosier Kids

We all know that the next generation must be more resilient, creative and adaptable than ever to meet the unknown demands of our future economy and world. The challenge of COVID-19 has reminded us just how critical these skills are – and they are established in the first five years of life.

Every day, Day Early Learning lab schools give children the skills they will need to succeed, while pioneering new approaches to help kids grow into curious, adaptable and resilient adults. Through our centers, we’ve made it our focus to ensure every child is ready to flourish in kindergarten and beyond.While the 2020 COVID pandemic challenged everyone, ELI continued serving the children and families most in need of our support. In fact we opened our doors wider.

It is the mission of Early Learning Indiana to share this focus with partners, businesses and advocates across the entire state. We are the leader in expanding access to high-quality education and opportunity to Indiana children and families — regardless of place or economics.

This annual event is helping us address immediate needs in our community and offers our partners a rewarding investment that will last for years to come.
