Founded in 1976, The Manchester Early Learning Center (MELC) is a notable part of the Manchester community. MELC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
The mission of MELC is to provide a safe place with positive role models and quality programs that enable all children to reach their full potential.
MELC was founded by the Manchester Community Service Council (MCSC). The Manchester Community Service Council determined that there were few affordable childcare options for working families in the Town of Manchester. MELC continues to meet the needs of Manchester families by providing quality and affordable programming for children 3 years of age – 6th grade.
Keeping the cost of care affordable for families is a priority to support our mission. The continued success of our programs relies on the generosity of grants, corporate sponsors, foundations, individuals, and contributors. Whether you are an individual or represent a business or other institution, you can help to ensure that the MELC continues to have the resources, talent, and ability to provide unique services to the Manchester education system. Please consider supporting MELC.
