Evansville - Early Childhood Learning Center

Did you know? The average age of an Ivy Tech student is 27 years old. More than 67% of our students work full-time jobs. Nearly half  of Ivy Tech students are parents to one or more children. Research has demonstrated that lack of affordable, quality and convenient childcare is often a barrier to students completing their education. 

Early Childhood Learning Center at Ivy Tech Evansville:

Ivy Tech Community College Evansville would appreciate your contribution towards the renovations of the on campus Early Childhood Learning Center, a partnership managed by CAPE Head Start. There are two Head Start classrooms and two Early Head Start classrooms, offering 51 openings. This is a great opportunity to enrich our community through the gift of early childhood education and support Ivy Tech student parents education and career goals. Ivy Tech students have priority enrollment access. In addition, the learning center will be used as an experiential learning center for students in Ivy Tech's Early Childcare Education program.
