Indiana University Bloomington

Our Mission

Early Childhood Education Services (ECES) provides year round, high quality care and education to the children of Indiana University Bloomington faculty, staff and students. Our Commitment to high quality is demonstrated through strong campus support, child centered, active learning environments based on best practices and the use of degreed, master teachers. In addition to this service component, the IUB child care centers meet the academic mission of Indiana University by providing sites for student training and by serving as research sites for IUB faculty and students. Finally, the child care centers at IUB serve as model high quality, early education programs for the Bloomington community and the state of Indiana.


The office of Campus Child Care Support was established in 1996 through the recommendation of the IUB Campus Child Care Coalition with the support of student, faculty and staff organizations on the Bloomington campus. Funded through the Office of the Provost, Campus Child Care Support has a 3 part mission:


* To oversee and coordinate all child care services on the Bloomington campus.
* To provide a single point of entry for IUB students and employees seeking child care information and services on the Bloomington campus.
* To advocate for expansion and increased support for child care services on the Bloomington campus.
