Bombeck Family Learning Center

Welcome to the five star-rated Bombeck Family Learning Center

Preschooler playing with LEGOs in a classroomAt the Bombeck Family Learning Center, our main goal is to provide the very best care and education experiences for children by working in partnership with their families as the children grow and develop from ages birth through five years. 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 our Catholic, Marianist university guides us to advocate for young children and their families regardless of cultural, socioeconomic, ethnic, or religious background.
