Our three licensed child care facilities are all located in Perry Township. They are in residential settings to provide a more intimate environment for your child. We provide a structured, safe, educational setting with lots of tender loving care at all locations! Our child care providers are CPR and first aide certified, have passed drug tests, TB tests and background checks and are highly qualified to work with children in this age group! We have one location designed just for infants and toddlers. At another location we provide a full-day, year-round preschool program for children ages 2 1/2 through early 4's. A third location is used for special programs and a special Pre-K program designed just for kids who have one year left to prepare for kindergarten. Contact Laura to set up an interview (317) 753-1661.

Our Educational Philosophy


Indy Learning Center provides a nurturing, loving, educational environment in a residential setting. We maintain a positive atmosphere while engaging students in a variety of   age-appropriate activities designed to stimulate learning. We strive to instill Christian morals and values as we show students how to interact appropriately in a small group setting with other children and adults.


 


Discipline


We practice positive redirection as a way to teach the children to behave appropriately. When a child physical hurts another child (biting, hitting, pushing, etc.) he/she may be asked to sit in “time-out” for a short period of time (one minute per year in age) to remove him/her from the situation. Under no circumstance will we ridicule, embarrass or use any type of physical punishment with a child. In cases where behaviors threaten the safety of other children or the operation of our program we reserve the right to remove the child from our program.

Illness & Medications


If a child develops a rash, pinkeye, has diarrhea, is vomiting or running a temperature of 100 degrees or more, he/she must be picked up promptly. With pinkeye, the child must be on the antibiotic drops for 24 hours before returning.  Children must remain fever-free, diarrhea free and vomit free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medicine) before returning. Please make sure you have a back-up plan in case your child becomes ill. If your child has a rash, a written doctor's note stating that it is not contagious and it is okay to return to daycare will be needed. If medication needs to be left for us to administer, it must be accompanied by a written doctor’s order (even over-the-counter meds). The medication must be labeled with the child’s name. The “Permission to Administer Medication” form must be completed and signed by a parent. Please share the info verbally with the caregiver also.
