”Children from the Early Learning Center come to me ready to learn and meet the high expectations of today’s Kindergarten. They come with a strong foundation in the skills necessary to succeed in school both academically and socially.Sarah McCambridgeElementary Educator
The Early Learning Center is a licensed center by the State of Indiana. We are in the top 8% of early childhood programs in the nation, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We are also a 4-Star program with the Indiana Paths to Quality system.
Our first priority is for children to learn in an environment that is clean, safe and secure. Doors remain locked for entry during school hours and monitored security cameras are located at all entrances. Our dedicated facilities team cleans and sanitizes our rooms daily, and staff are trained annually in First Aid, CPR and Universal Precautions.
Our Natural Playground features log bridges, a playhouse, performing platforms, slides, a bike trail, a butterfly garden, a covered bridge, a pavilion and a huge sandbox. We are the only nationally-certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom in St. Joseph County.
