Homepage - Partnerships for Early Learners

Early Learning Indiana's statewide support team increases access and quality of early childhood programming across Indiana. In partnerships with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration's Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning, Early Learning Indiana aims to ensure that more children in child care or preschool are connected with a high-quality program and that their families are engaged and supported.

Our Work

We know the importance of early learning. Hoosier children deserve more high-quality programs with safe facilities, stimulating and family-friendly learning environments, and well-trained teachers.

In partnership with child care resource and referral agencies, early childhood professionals, families, and the broader community – and hopefully in partnership with you, too, we can achieve those goals.
