ATTENTION: Important Updates Regarding COVID-19

Welcome to Madison Park Learning Place where we believe each child is a unique gift from God. We strive to partner with families to further the success of each child.

Our program operates Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM until 5:00 PM, and can be reached during these hours by calling 765-646-1610. We serve children from six weeks through five years of age and school-age children during the summer months. 

New Check-In/Check-Out Procedure

To reduce the number of people inside our building, all students must be dropped off and checked in at the door. Guardians will not be permitted to enter at this time. All students will have their temperature taken before entering.  We appreciate your cooperation! The extra effort will help keep our students and staff healthy. 

Building Sanitization

UV lights have been installed in our central heating and cooling system to kill airborne bacteria and clean the air. A professional cleaning company will thoroughly clean and disinfect each classroom, kitchen, common area, equipment, and toys. Our staff will be following CDC guidelines for PPE as appropriate for their position.
