Early Learning Connections provides a variety of children’s programs and quality services designed to meet the needs of parents. We have been in operation since 1973 providing childcare and early education for the children and parents of Butler County.


Donations Make a Difference

We are currently trying to raise funds for certain renovation projects for our Mount Chestnut building we own. ELC needs windows, a new entrance, video security system, outside lights, emergency lights and exits. Our goal is $20,000, and we have already raised 20%. Since ELC is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, your donation is tax- deductible.

The renovation project will help ELC continue to provide quality services in a safe and nurturing environment for families, children and staff. You can contribute to resources necessary to help update our facilities. With your generosity, ELC will be able to continue to help children and families thrive and grow. Beyond the generosity of just donating money, you can also get involved and help by donating any resources or volunteering your services we may need. By sharing this campaign with your friends and colleagues it would be greatly appreciated as well.

We will keep you updated at least once a week for the next 3 weeks to let you know where we currently stand.  We want to get started on at least one item on our list within the next few months, as some of the items on our list take more time than others. Rewards will be sent out as soon as the launch has ended.

Thanks in advance for your generosity, love, and mutual understanding.
