Application Process

Each day Maria Early Learning Center welcomes a diverse community of children.
The Center accepts children who are enrolled

• Full-time (children six weeks to 36 months)
• Part-time (children must be 3 years old) for

Two full days a week or
Three full days

(Rotating schedules cannot be accommodated)

The Center does not offer half-day programming.


Prior to enrollment the director meets with the family for a scheduled tour and interview. To insure the safety of the children currently enrolled at Maria, tours for all visitors are prearranged. The director schedules tours daily, Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 to 11:00 and again after 3:00 p.m. Interested families may contact the Director at 419-471-0170 for a tour appointment or email her at

Waiting List

After completing a tour of the Center, families are welcome to join the Center’s waiting list if placement is not available. The director will place families on the list in the order of on-site tours completed and the month in which the family wishes to enroll their child(ren). Applications are ordered according to date received; however, other factors, including the age of the child, may affect enrollment offers.

Waiting list applications must be submitted with a $50.00 non-refundable payment.
