Learning Grove

About Us

On January 1, 2020, Cincinnati Early Learning Centers (CELC) and Children, Inc. (CI), both organizations best known for their work in early childhood education, joined efforts to become Learning Grove.

CELC and CI have been in existence independently for over 40 years, collectively serving nearly 8,000 children, youth, and families annually across all our programs, including more than 3,000 children a year in 51 early childhood and school-age programs.

While each provided a broad range of services for children and families, CELC and CI are best known for providing high-quality childcare, preschool, before- and after-school care, college and career readiness, and parental supports across Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio.

As a single organization, Learning Grove heightens regional impact by serving more children, empowering more families, and advocating for the success of every child. This new partnership allows Learning Grove to move further faster, and combine resources to serve young children, students, families and teachers more effectively. We are nurturing lifelong success by focusing our work on supporting children and students, families, professionals and our community.

The new combined Learning Grove will continue to maintain our commitment to serving a diverse population of children and families and provide research-based, high-quality practices that never compromise on what is best for children, while also working to innovate and advocate for them.

Together, we transform lives and help build brighter futures.
Together, we thrive for lifelong success.
