How can we be of service?

Our team of experts combines knowledge and experience in the field of early education withย HighScope curriculum to provide a rich academic foundation through direct, hands-on learning.

*Income-based tuition is available.

Parents are their childโ€™s first teacher. We’re here to provide support and resources to make every moment count through SparKits Learning Kits,ย Bright by Text, and resources located at select OB Offices, birthing centers, and pediatric offices.

Early Educators are critical to early education, we support them through our Federal Food Program (CACFP) service, Child Development Associates (CDA), and The Engaging Childcare to Impact Infant Mortality Project.

Through the ECA Shared Services Network*, early childcare providers are able to increase their revenue, save time on daily operations, and grow their businesses.
*The ECA Shared Services Network is made possible through a $100,000 grant from Early Learning Indiana.

This week's #ECACurriculumCorner is all about "Knowledge of Self and Others." Infants must first develop a sense of self before differentiating themselves from others. Toddlers learn who people are and what they do by seeing and imitating roles in their families, while preschoolers venture into the worlds of their school, neighborhood, town, or city. They are curious about how they and their families are different from others. ๐Ÿ˜Š#EarlyLearning #ChildDevelopment #EarlyEducationMatters #EarlyEducation ... See MoreSee Less
