Our center has now re-opened and we are in Phase 2 in cooperation with the State and City mandates. Our new hours until further notice are 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. (5/18/20)

The Mid-City Early Learning Center (MCELC) is a State of Louisiana licensed Type I daycare facility conveniently located in the heart of Mid-City on Canal Street and is easily accessible by the streetcar.

Our renovated facility (2016) provides quality, affordable child-care for children from 6 weeks

through age 4. We offer only full time childcare

Monday through Friday from

7:30 am to 5:30(*4:30) pm throughout the year.


Our program carries out the mission of the adjacent Canal Street Church: A Mosaic Community by creating an environment for young children where they are highly valued, their individuality is celebrated, their faith is fostered, and their relationships are treasured. As part of our programming, we include weekly chapel services for our older students and integrate foundational

biblical principles.

Happy Mardi Gras

MCELC offers newborn and infant, toddler, and 3 Year Old classes to accommodate our students as they grow and develop from infancy into preparation for entering Pre-K4. Each class’ curriculum is teacher-written in a creative fashion and assessed using the Creative Curriculum Goals and Objectives. Additionally, we have designed a natural, secured outdoor playground where students can freely express themselves, whether it be riding on tricycles,, tossing balls, climbing, pushing trucks, eating snack, or performing on our wooden stage.


As a parent, we encourage you to continually be engaged in your child’s classroom life! We are committed to keeping open and transparent lines of communication. Your involvement can range from being a part of the Parent Advisory Board or offering your volunteerism.
