Early Childhood Education Centers (Childcare)

Welcome! Sinclair Community College has established the Early Childhood Education Center to meet the childcare needs of student/parents, faculty, and staff. The Sinclair Early Childhood Education Center provides part-time or full-time childcare and is conveniently located on the Sinclair campus on the first floor of Building 9, at the northeast corner of West Fifth and South Perry streets.

The centers were developed to accomplish two purposes: (1) to provide quality childcare for children ages 3-5 years of age, and (2) to serve as a laboratory school for Sinclair’s Early Childhood Education Degree Program.

The Sinclair Early Childhood Education Center is four star rated by Step Up To Quality and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
