Where Your Dollars Go
Early Learning Indiana is using grants and the generous donations of individuals, companies and organizations to ensure every child is empowered with the skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Here’s how we’re making a difference:
Practicing What We Teach
We operate a network of community-based lab schools, advancing the science of early learning, training the next generation of teachers and instilling essential skills in young children.
We serve as an expert partner, enabling early learning providers to build capacity, transform operations and improve outcomes.
Driving System-Level Change
We're a leading voice in the conversation about the future of early learning and its role in helping to solve K-12 and workforce challenges.

The Day Nursery Auxiliary has been supporting Early Learning Indiana and its Day Early Learning centers for over 80 years. Even amid the challenges of COVID-19, the group has not stopped their volunteer work. In the spring of 2020, several Auxiliary members sewed over 100 child-sized masks to be used in DEL centers, and the group hosted its Style Show virtually for the first time in the fall, raising over $20,000.
