IIE’s Learning Center is a locally operated state licensed STARS 2 facility that welcomes children of all abilities and backgrounds.  We value the uniqueness and diversity that each child brings to our center.  Our curriculum fosters an educational environment that helps children ages 6 months –12 years achieve their developmental benchmarks. Based on the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards, our curriculum and programming embrace inclusion and create a sense of belonging for our families.

Childcare is offered from 7 am to 5 pm Monday-Friday. Additional summer programming coming soon!
