About Us…

Serving families with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years, our East Walnut Hills location opened in 1984 and was the first full day early childhood program in the City of Cincinnati to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).  In addition, the center holds a 5-Star rating from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Step Up to Quality.  Housed in a 150-year-old church building on the historical registry, East Walnut Hills is known for its creative use of unique spaces.  

Our center serves children and families form Walnut Hills, Avondale, Mt. Lookout, Hyde Park and a variety of other Greater Cincinnati communities.  CELC and its centers are part of the United Way and the agency contracts with the Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services to provide services to families who qualify for assistance based on their income.
