COVID-19 has negatively impacted the financial strength of many of our community's families and businesses. One major hurdle that families are facing right now is how to pay childcare costs upfront so that they can return to work.

Oak Park Early Learning Academy's ChildCare Fund can help families today! Through the generous support of the United Way of Whitewater Valley, Oak Park Early Learning is offering weekly tuition subsidies for families ineligible for the Indiana's Child Care Development Fund.  As a funded partner of the United Way of Whitewater Valley, we are working together to economically mobilize our community to return to work.    Read more. . .

Indiana’s new Build, Learn, Grow scholarship program is offering families that work in essential businesses tuition scholarships for their children’s early care and education, summer learning and before- and after-school programs. To qualify, one adult in your household must work in an essential business such as health care, human services, education, retail, restaurant and food service, essential infrastructure, media, manufacturing and logistics, religious and charitable organizations and many others found here.

Scholarships cover up to 80% of tuition for children ages 0-12 who are enrolled in early care and education, summer learning and before- and after-school care through March 2022.

Oak Park Early Learning Academy offers longer hours of operation. We are open Mondays through Fridays from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

We also respect our families' need for consistent, reliable childcare so we only close our childcare facility for major holidays and emergencies, such as severe weather or power outages.
