We are the leading organization for early childhood awareness in Muncie and Delaware County, Indiana. Through a variety of task force and volunteer efforts, we improve opportunities for children aged 0-5 to reach their developmental potential.
Early childhood development has been adopted as a primary economic development strategy by a number of key groups in Muncie, including the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance, the Ball Brothers Foundation and the Muncie Action Plan.
