Early Childhood Classes

Early Childhood Family Education provides classes and services for families with young children from birth to kindergarten.  A typical ECFE class includes parent discussion while children learn together in an early childhood classroom.  Parents and children later join each other for fun learning activities.

School readiness programs are for 3 and 4 year-olds.  Our preschool program provides children with a positive introduction to school.  Our teachers are highly qualified, experienced and licensed by the state.


Kids' SAFARI is a before and after school program, as well as non-school day care, offered for children in Kindergarten through Grade 5.  The focus of these programs is on school-age childcare and enrichment opportunities designed to meet the changing needs of children and families.  Kids' SAFARI is located at all Bloomington Public School elementary buildings.  For more information, please visit our website at www.kidssafari.org.

Early Learners Academy is a quality childcare program designed to meet the needs of families who desire an all day early education experience for their three to five-year-old children.
