SCCF Commits To 2 More Years of Quality Early Childhood Education Grant
Thursday, April 11, 2019

In March 2019, Steuben County Community Foundation committed two more years of grant funding to improve the number and quality of daycare and early childhood learning options in Steuben County.

SCCF has partnered with Early Childhood Alliance (ECA), a Fort Wayne based nonprofit who is recognized as a leader in the early childhood care and education field in northeast Indiana. This additional funding is part of almost $45,000 that SCCF has invested in early childhood education in Steuben County over the last 3 years.

With this grant, ECA will continue to offer classes for Steuben County childcare staff to work towards their Child Development Associate (CDA) credential, as well as networking events, professional development, and capacity building grants.

This grant supports childcare centers throughout Steuben County, including Heaven Sent Preschool and Day Care in Angola, Kingdom Kids in Hamilton, and Little Lambs Daycare in Fremont.
