We believe the positive experiences of infants, toddlers, and young children are critical to healthy development and that these experiences establish a foundation from which children can reach their full potential.

As leaders in the early childhood community, our employees enjoy reaching out to the community in ways that improve young lives in our region and advance the development of knowledge in the field of early childhood education. We are affiliated with the University of Dayton School of Education and Health Sciences, and the family spirit that prevails at the Catholic, Marianist university guides us to advocate for young children and their families regardless of cultural, socioeconomic, ethnic, or religious background.

The Bombeck Family Learning Center serves as the demonstration school for UD students studying early childhood education. This unique partnership allows the Center's children and their families to experience high-quality care and education. Second-year early childhood education majors actively participate in the Center's classrooms during their year-­long field practicum, learning the best practices in early childhood education as they prepare to become teachers.
