Our Story

The YMCA Early Learning Center (ELC) partners with parents to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that promotes a child’s emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development. We know that a children’s experiences, both at home and at the ELC are the foundation for a life long love of learning.

The Wells County Early Learning Center (ELC) offers a high quality, developmentally appropriate program for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

The ELC is the only licensed early learning center in Wells County. We are part of the Indiana Paths to Quality, a program that grades child care quality.

We are a not-for-profit organization committed to helping all children prepare for kindergarten by being surrounded with loving, caring role models. We work hard to eliminate barriers for families with financial hardships by offering financial assistance and accepting CCDF vouchers.
