Bombeck Family Learning Center offers indoor & outdoor experiential areas

Indoor facilities

Our 21,000-square-foot center features large, open classrooms with an abundance of natural light, which encourages young learners to explore in a safe environment.

Each of our rooms is staffed by a three-teacher team, all of whom are either certified by the Child Development Association or possess a master's, bachelor's or associate's degree in early childhood education.

Children are assigned to classrooms based on many factors, including age, developmental level, and the gender and chronological makeup of the class.

Our classrooms
  • Sunbeams: Infants (6 weeks to 12 months old)
  • Flyers: Toddlers (12-24 months old)
  • Gliders: Toddlers (24-36 months old)
  • Explorers: Preschoolers (3-5 years old)
  • Voyagers: Preschoolers (3-5 years old)
  • Jets: Preschoolers (3-5 years old)
Low staff-to-student ratios

Our facility and staffing structure allows us to offer ratios of caregivers/children that easily exceed state standards:

  • Birth-12 months: our ratio is 1:4 (state is 1:5 or 2:12)
  • 12-18 months: our ratio is 1:4 (state is 1:6 or 2:12)
  • 18-30 months: our ratio is 1:5 (state is 1:7)
  • 30-36 months: our ratio is 1:5 (state is 1:8)
  • 3-5 years: our ratio is 1:8 (state is 1:12)

Students from the University of Dayton Early Childhood Education program add additional support for the children in our care.

Outdoor facilities

We also offer several spacious, outdoor learning and play spaces with age-appropriate play stations and toys that help children develop gross and fine motor skills, as well as other areas of development.

The children also tend a garden each year during the growing season.
