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 that provides a safe, nurturing place for children ages 6 weeks thru third grade 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.
