The Columbus Early Learning Centers (CELC) has been providing high-quality early learning and care to our city’s children for 130 years. They provide affordable access to high-quality early childhood education that has strengthened the lives of thousands of children and families. In 2016 they provided care for 206 children, ages 6 weeks to 5 years.


Join Besa and CELC to help transform their playground! As volunteers, you'll ensure that the playground is a safe and beautiful place for our kids to thrive! Activities may include weeding, mulching, painting, and more. Supplies, including tools and gloves, will be provided.


CELC will provide gardening gloves as well as practice social distancing. Volunteers are required to bring their own mask or face covering, CELC will not be providing any. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 


The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
