Malaika Early Learning Center

  • Malaika Early Learning Center is a unique facility dedicated to the young children of Milwaukee.
  • We are a state-licensed childcare center and a private/choice 4 and 5 year old kindergarten program that provides a safe, nurturing place for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old to learn and grow.
  • Our mission is to work collaboratively with families to establish a strong academic, social and emotional base in the lives of the children we serve.
  • Research has shown, unfortunately, that life outcomes are largely determined by the time a child reaches 1st grade.
  • The basic social, intellectual, and emotional foundation developed in those early years become the critical factor for future growth, development and social integration.
  • Malaika's goal is to give all children a strong foundation, regardless of their socio-economic status or family structure.
