Growing Years Early Learning Center - Altoona
The Growing Years Early Learning Center offers child care and preschool for children ages 1 year through kindergarten in a faith-based setting that is nurturing and educational. The curriculum encourages each child’s creativity and kindergarten readiness skills while fostering the development of his or her mind, body and social self.

When parents entrust their children to our care, we know they count on us to protect and nurture God’s most precious gifts. We always strive to provide the best possible environment and the most positive experiences for all of the children in our programs. Our goal is to promote the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical development of each child. We encourage parents’ visits and participation in helping us reach that goal.
Child care at the Growing Years Early Learning Centers includes an extensive schedule to help children learn and stay busy. See our Calendar for schedules of a typical day for both toddlers and preschoolers.
