Early Childhood Education in Indiana and Funding Options for Childcare

Nowadays, it can be difficult to find a safe, quality childcare or preschool that is also affordable. ABC’s & 123’s Learning Centers in Indianapolis, Noblesville, and Avon locations understand your top concerns as a parent as well as your busy schedule.  That’s why we provide safe, nurturing, and educational programs for Indiana children, infants through school aged.

High-quality, licensed preschool programs are not only a great choice for families who value safety and developmental childcare, but those programs often qualify for alternative funding options.  Here are some childcare funding options that Indiana families may be eligible to receive:

On My Way Pre-K
On My Way Pre-K provides educational funds to those at 4 years of age from low-income families. On My Way Pre-K awards help children receive quality pre-K program and to be prepared for kindergarten and beyond.

For the time being, this program is only available at our Indianapolis location because the program is based on county and Marion is the only one of our counties currently participating.
