The ELC will be located at 401 River Ridge Parkway within the River Ridge Commerce Center in Jeffersonville, IN. Please be on the lookout for construction developments over the next few months. Also, you can find our contact and location information at the bottom of this page.
We are aiming for a June 2021 opening with registration and open house/tours beginning about a month before. With the COVID-19 pandemic and other logistical matters, our timeline could extend longer in the future, but at the moment, we are confident with a June 2021 grand opening. All important date changes will updated on our website, and once definitive dates for registration and opening have been set, then we will post them on our website in addition to making social media posts.
Our tuition and fees are comparable to the costs of other early learning programs in the area. More definitive prices will be released at a later point.
Our teachers will have obtained degrees in Early Childhood Education, Child Development, or a related field and engaged in a minimum of 25 hours of individualized professional development annually, in addition to all training that is required by Indiana daycare licensing. Our teachers will also participate in early childhood workshops, professional organizations, and conferences throughout the year.
Ultimately, we are planning to operate from 6am - 6pm, with a full day of learning from 8am - 4pm. We also plan to have the option of Before School Care from 6 - 8 am and After School Care from 4 - 6pm, for an additional fee.
All students (Full & Half Day) will receive breakfast, a morning snack, and lunch. All Full Day students will additionally receive an afternoon snack.
Initially, transportation will not be provided by the center. However, we anticipate providing transportation for Phase II of our program, beginning in 2025.
We transcend daycare and move toward developing the whole child, cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally. A typical childcare facility aims to provide basic safety and care for your child; whereas, we specialize in child development, offer degreed educators, utilize a research and evidence-based curriculum and assessment, offer abundant opportunities for family engagement, have low teacher to student ratios, and provide the highest quality materials and environment for children in our care.
While we welcome all families that find our program best suited for their family’s needs, our initial vision will be to serve the businesses and workforce of the River Ridge Commerce Center. Please contact us to see if there is availability in our program.
