Broad Street Center
at Broad Street Presbyterian Church
Located just east of Downtown Columbus, our Broad Street Center is a favorite for parents working downtown. We enroll children ages 6 weeks through 5 years of age and work closely with families to meet each individual child’s needs. In addition, our partners at Broad Street Presbyterian Food Pantry generously work with families from all four of our locations to provide a monthly "CELC Family Food Night."
