Mission: Learning Grove develops and supports innovative quality learning experiences that empower children, youth, and families across diverse communities.
Serving Our Community:
On January 1, 2020, Cincinnati Early Learning Centers (CELC) and Children, Inc. (CI), both organizations known for their work in early childhood education, joined efforts to become Learning Grove. Learning Grove’s rich history started over 40 years ago, and today serves nearly 7,000 families in Ohio and Kentucky.
Learning Grove provides innovative and holistic programming to children and families prenatally through college and career-readiness. We are the largest nonprofit provider of highquality early care and education programs in the region; providing year-round, full day, high-quality childhood education to nurture children’s lifelong success. Our other prominent services include before and after school care, parent engagement and support, professional coaching, and college/career planning.
