We collaborate with a network of 12 licensed childcare centers and eight licensed child care homes to improve the education and well-being of our children. The quality of child care our families receive has a direct impact on their child’s ability to learn, to build healthy relationships and to become the best they can be. These child care facilities offer parents the knowledge that our providers are regulated through the highest standards. In their care, children receive sensitive and responsive caregiving, cognitive and language stimulation, and a safe and healthy environment to learn and grow.
Many of our providers are located in Columbus communities (see map below) close to where our families live. These neighborhoods include Franklinton, The Hilltop, South Linden, Near East neighborhoods, Near South and Far South neighborhoods and the University District.
“We are bringing together a team of the leading minds from higher education, government, community programming and child care agencies, to ensure the most vulnerable children in our community have every opportunity to succeed in life.” Ohio State President Michael V. Drake
