Toddlers | 1-3 years | Serving South Bend, IN

Attentive Care From A Passionate Team

With a dedicated owner whose door is always open and highly-trained, loving teachers who care for children in an exclusively small group, your toddler gets the attention they deserve to flourish in their learning environment.

A Unique Building Full Of Amazing Spaces

Natural light pours into the spacious classrooms of a historic downtown building to illuminate your child’s wonderland. The large motor skills room in the center of the building is a flexible play space where everyone feels at home.

Play-Based Learning That Happens At Their Pace

The trusted HighScope© curriculum delivers play-based learning at a pace that suits your child. They begin building pre-literacy and pre-math skills through loose-parts and playful activities while making meaningful cognitive and sensory connections.

Helping Your Little One With Their Big Feelings

Using Conscious Discipline® and HighScope© Conflict Resolution, teachers help your child identify, communicate, and manage emotions, use good manners and appropriate classroom behaviors, and form their very first friendships.

Enrichments Add Fun & Excitement To Their Day

Every day, exciting activities enhance your child’s learning experience. Baby signing builds early communication skills, while music, dance, and yoga foster coordination, self-expression, and a mind-body connection.

Outdoor Play Next To Boats & Helicopters

Your child’s outdoor wonderland includes safe play areas where they can find their feet out in the fresh air. Right along the St. Joseph River, there’s always something exciting to see or hear nearby.

Food That Keeps Them Nourished Every Day

Your child stays full and fed with delicious, nutritious, allergy-conscious daily breakfasts, lunches, and snacks. Lovingly cooked onsite by dedicated kitchen staff, you never worry about packing food because your tuition fees include everything they need.

Field Trips Bring Joy In-House Or On The Move

Your child loves going to the park, heading to the zoo and the splash pad, and taking trips to local farms and nature preserves. Sometimes, the community comes to them with visits from authors, sports mascots, first responders, and more!

A Convenient App Keeps You Connected

You stay on top of your child’s day with the Smartcare app. Get adorable photos, fun videos, daily activity reports, and classroom memos in real-time, and feel connected to everything your toddler is up to.

Exceptional Parent & Family Support

Your family becomes part of our family with the support you deserve. An open-door policy, monthly newsletters, regular parent-teacher conferences, onsite speech and behavioral therapies, and a PTO bring everyone together as active partners in education.

Safety & Security You Can Depend On

Your little one stays safe and sound under the watchful eye of CPR-certified teachers behind restricted access doors and tall security fences. The natural layout of the river provides additional privacy and protection to your child’s home-away-from-home.

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.
