Dedicated Teachers Guide Your Child’s Learning

A team of passionate, qualified teachers guide your child’s growth and development with unmatched care and attention to detail. Trust our reputation for high-quality early learning driven by excellence.

Childhood Magic In A South Bend Landmark

A wondrous and charming building becomes your child’s second home, with beautiful river views and natural light from huge windows. Their classroom is calm, inviting, and a large gathering space fosters community spirit at the heart of the building.

Outdoor Spaces That Bring The “Wow” Factor

Your child gets outside every day to play in the fresh air. They climb on natural structures and tend to the gardens with amazing views of the river, boats floating by, and planes flying into the South Bend Airport.

Outdoor Spaces That Bring The “Wow” Factor

A Trusted Program Sparks Their Academic Success

Teachers deliver the proven, play-based, and research-backed HighScope© curriculum to small classes for personalized learning. Your child explores literacy, math, science, and social studies with real-world applications to build crucial cognitive and critical thinking skills.

The Social-Emotional Support They Need As They Grow

Your child learns to communicate and manage their emotions, be kind and empathetic peers, and use appropriate classroom behaviors. Teachers use the gentle, effective Conscious Discipline® philosophy and HighScope© Conflict Resolution to guide these crucial skills.

Self-Care & Practical Skills Boost Their Independence

Tying shoes and tidying up toys, manipulating writing implements and tools like scissors, learning a daily routine, and following classroom directions are just some of the life skills your preschooler learns to build their confidence and independence.

Enrichments Boost Their Brain Power & Motor Skills

Awesome enrichments like sign language, music, dance, and yoga are daily opportunities to self-express and explore new passions. Optional extras include Soccer Shots and tumbling on the Gymnastics Bus.

Healthy Meals & Snacks Keep Them Nourished

Tuition fees cover your child’s daily breakfast, lunch, and snack, all prepared with love by dedicated kitchen staff, who take food sensitivities into account. Their delicious, healthy food keeps them fueled and energized for learning and fun.

Your Child Loves Exciting Field Trips & Visitors

Heading out to the park, nature preserve, local farms, the zoo, and the splash pad open your little one’s eyes to new adventures and experiences. Fun visitors like authors, sports mascots, police officers, and firefighters bring the community to them.

Security That You Can Depend On

Behind the restricted access doors of our sturdy building, your child learns and plays under the watchful eyes of CPR-certified teachers. Secure fences keep them safe while outdoors, and the landscape of the river offers extra privacy and protection.

Support For You Completes The Home-School Connection

An open-door policy, daily communication via a handy app, monthly newsletters, parent-teacher conferences, and onsite speech and behavioral therapy support your family and make you an active partner in your child’s care and education.

This is the most amazing early learning center! We have sent both of our boys here starting at 12 months, and our experience has been nothing short of exceptional. The director is a hands-on, dedicated advocate for the kids. There is very little turnover in staff, and we have loved every teacher the boys have had. I highly recommend this place for child care.

The AMAZING staff treats you like family and your child as if they were their own. They take your concerns into account and learn each child and parent individually. The teachers and staff work extremely hard to teach each child all that they can. I am completely blown away each time my child comes home having learned something. This place is everything a parent could want and more!

I cannot sing enough praises for EB Learning Center! My daughter has been there for two years so far and she loves her teachers. As a parent, I love to know that the classes use Highscope curriculum to provide a structured day and that my child is being well-prepared to transition to pre-k. The staff and director are so incredibly hardworking, supportive, and nurturing. We’re proud to be part of this community.

We have been a part of the EBLC family for 6 years now through 3 different children. The care, love, and commitment that the staff and teachers show each and every day to make our family feel safe and secure. They have kept their Highscope early education certification since the center opened. I am truly blessed to have found this center and recommend it to everyone who asks.

My kids LOVE it here and every single teacher loves those kids like their own. So happy we came to East Bank. My kids don’t cry when they get dropped off. Sometimes they don’t even want to leave! Lol. My point is that they deserve an A+. Especially now during this pandemic. They’re sanitizing everyone’s lockers now and since we’ve had them home for a week. I highly recommend.

I absolutely love this place. The children get to do a variety of activities, from singing, dancing, painting, coloring, play dough, water activities, and lots more. I would leave my son here for as long as I could. I have total confidence that not only his basic needs are being provided at East Bank, but that he is also learning and being challenged and feels loved and cared for while there.
