Early Childhood

The MSD of Lawrence Township takes pride in being an Indianapolis leader in Early Childhood Education. From National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accreditation, to the highest level of recognition from Indiana's Paths to Quality, to one and two-way dual language programming for children as young as three, we ensure the highest-quality experiences for the youngest learners.

Every aspect of our programming is intentional, from the physical building to the programs and curriculum, providing the youngest learners with the highest quality education. Programs are focused on supporting and increasing early literacy and numeracy skills through intentional play. Research shows a direct correlation between high-quality early learning and positive long-term outcomes in life, including increased educational attainment, healthier lifestyles, and more career success.  

With families from diverse cultural, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds, our community values and embraces diversity as one of its greatest strengths. Our Early Childhood programming is the on-ramp to a successful academic career in Lawrence Township, the District of Destination.
