About our Network

The Early Learning Network of Central is a dedicated alliance working together to create a safe, engaging learning environment that nurtures the well-being and growth of each child on their educational journey.


Our collaboration strives to increase the quality of Central's early childhood programs and ensure that all children enter school ready to succeed.  We also strive to make it easier for families in the community to access information to help you make the best choices for your children.  (Read our Blueprint for the Future-- 2020-30 to learn more.)


We are excited to support the children and families of the Central Community!
