About the Provider

Description: The Children's Learning Center of Posey County is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing quality full day childcare for working families.  We exist due to the efforts of many volunteers who, realizing the important and necessary service that quality childcare programs provide to a community, strive to secure funding for this endeavor.  It is with these funds raised by their efforts, coming from the state, as well as from area businesses, private individuals, and community-development organizations, that our center came into being.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My child's room is always messy when I pick them up. It also seems like there's always a different teacher with my child every time I pick them up. I'm not comfortable talking with a different person every time I pick my child up. I'd also like to get some kind of newsletter from the center about upcoming things, new staff members, etc.
