Early Learning Center & Hoosier Hills Childcare Center:

MCCSC offers early childhood education programs for children ages six weeks through three-years-old at two state-licensed, PTQ Level-3 child care centers: Early Learning Center and Hoosier Hills Childcare Center. 

We believe that our youngest learners thrive in a safe, inclusive, and play-based environment where they can actively explore the world around them. Our “whole-child” teaching approach provides students with the opportunity to socialize, create, and discover with their peers in classrooms rich in developmentally appropriate materials. Growth and development of each student is encouraged through daily experiences which include foundational learning concepts and kindergarten readiness skills. Our teachers build positive relationships with each student and their families while embracing the family as the child’s first teacher. 

Our goals for students in MCCSC’s Early Learning Programs include:

  • Achieving developmental milestones from birth to age five
  • Developing respect and empathy for themselves and others
  • Instilling a sense of flexible thinking to create solutions
  • Fostering curiosity and a joy for learning

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office for assistance.
