Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning

The Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning (OECOSL) oversees early child care, education and out-of-school-time programs.

The vision of the Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning (OECOSL) is that every Indiana community will have a strong network of Early Care and Education (ECE) and Out-of-School Time (OST) programs that support the child, the family and local schools. Programs will be high quality, affordable and accessible to enable families to work effectively to obtain economic self-sufficiency. Children will thrive in programs that meet their developmental and educational needs and make them feel welcome, encouraged and supported. Professionals teaching and caring for children will have the resources, including training and education, needed to operate and maintain high quality programs.
