The Force Awakens in Parents & Children!

Over 150 guests from Northwest Indiana helped celebrate our past, present, and future, with a Star Wars-studded dinner and silent auction. President Terry Quinn shared his personal connection with Early Learning as a tribute to the devotion his mother had for baby interaction and development. Executive Director announced a target June kickoff of Parents' Village, an online community devoted to connecting parents to answers, screenings, and real-time chatting with early childhood experts. Awards were presented to Nancy Macknikowski and Millies Engineering for their tireless support. Funds raised from the evening will ensure that ELP will have another inspiring year!
