All children deserve to be nurtured through high-quality education, to think critically, get along with others, and set the path toward a productive future. To help realize these experiences, we never compromise on practices and programs that are best for your child. Extraordinarily dedicated women and men innovate and advocate for our children, parents, and community. We work together as one, because when we are all invested in far-reaching, high-quality early childhood education, it lifts up the whole community.
For over 40 years, Cincinnati Early Learning Centers and Children, Inc. were both well known for their commitment to delivering this outstanding level of early education. On January 1, 2020, these two highly acclaimed organizations joined efforts, combining strengths under a new name: Learning Grove. Now more than ever, we are able to serve a racially and socioeconomically diverse population of nearly 7,000 children, youth, and families annually with programs across Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio.
Learning Grove will reach more children and empower more families. This new partnership allows our organization to move further faster and combine resources to support youth, parents, and educators more effectively. Through the might of collaboration, we have exponentially increased our ability to nurture lifelong successes for children and students, families, professionals, and the community.
Together, we transform lives and help build brighter futures. Together, we thrive for lifelong success.
