About The YMCA KIPP Early Learning Center

The YMCA KIPP Early Learning Center opened in August 2016. We are open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and offer infant and toddler care, Pre K, and after-school for KIPP Kindergartners and 1st Graders.

Morning snack, lunch and snack are provided at no charge to all children daily. The facility is located on the grounds of the KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) Columbus campus close to Easton and the airport. The Early Learning Center partners with the Columbus Museum of Art, Ballet Met, the Mid Ohio Food Bank and others members of the community.

KIPP is a national network of free, open enrollment college preparatory public schools, grades kindergarten through high school, with a track record of preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and life.
