Columbus Early Learning Centers

CELC_LogoTransparentColumbus Early Learning Centers’ mission of providing high-quality early childhood education and childcare services to help meet the needs of working and low-income families has remained the same for almost 130 years.

In order to fulfill its mission, CELC operates at four locations, CELC at Champion Ave., CELC at Broad St., CELC at Main St., and CELC at Myrtle Ave. CELC serves children from six weeks of age to Pre-Kindergarten. In addition, CELC recently partnered with The Ohio State University and National Church Residences to form the first community shared site Intergenerational Center, the first in the nation. The center is just one way that CELC is striving to meet the needs of the families it serves.
