About Us

East Tenth earned NAEYC accreditation in November 2019. Shortly after this great accomplishment we were recognized as a Paths to Quality Level 4 provider. It is with great pride that we are able to offer quality early education and care to the families we serve.


The mission of East 10th United Methodist Children and Youth Center, Inc. is to provide a safe place where the spiritual, emotional, educational, and physical needs of children, youth, and their families are responded to in a holistic approach.


East 10th will provide a school family that fosters meaningful connections. Through healthy support of our staff, children, and their families, we will develop a strong community of learners who will then become caring positive contributors to our world.


The Center is an outreach initiative of East Tenth United Methodist Church. After conducting a survey and many focus groups, it was clear that the neighborhood was in need of a safe place where the children and youth could go to learn and grow. A Board of Directors was chosen in April of 1995 and an executive director hired in March of 1996. The Center is incorporated and is registered with the IRS as a not-for-profit organization with 501(c) 3 status. We celebrated 23 years in March of 2019!


Our East Tenth is located right in the heart of the St. Clair Place Neighborhood on the near east side of Indianapolis. This gives us the opportunity to serve a diverse population. We are proud to be a part of the east side community where we work, live, and play!
