College Avenue Early Learning Center is dedicated to providing high quality early care and education for all children. We serve Manhattan and the surrounding area. We were created in 1998 as a mission of College Avenue United Methodist Church out of the desperate need for quality infant care in the community. In 2005 we were able to expand and add a preschool room to the center.

While we are a mission of the church, we provide a secular curriculum so that we are able to serve all children in the community.

Our Infant/Toddler Room enrolls 8 children ages 6 weeks to 3 years. Our Preschool Room enrolls 15 children ages 2-1/2 years to 5 (and not yet eligible for kindergarten).

We are licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and we partner with several agencies including Raising Riley/Smart Start, Kansas State University, USD 383, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

College Avenue Early Learning Center is dedicated to providing high quality early care and education for all children. Our curriculum is child-centered, meaning that we individualize our plans based on each childs individual needs, developmental level, interests, and family goals. We address the whole child including physical, language, social, emotional, and intellectual development.

Above all, we provide a safe environment with loving and attentive adults who form individual relationships with children and provide a caring, respectful, and pleasant environment for children and their families.

We understand the vital role of family in a child’s life. We know that parents are the expert on their own child. We value communication, both formal and informal, with parents and family. We strive to build a trusting relationship with the families we serve so that we can provide the best care for children. We value diversity and we celebrate the uniqueness of each child and their family.
