About Us

You have tried the rest now come to the best, Millcreek Children’s Center!

Millcreek Children’s Center was founded by Sister Jerome Corcoran in March of 1976 and started with just three children. Initially, we operated out of the old Latin Culture Center in Youngstown, OH, and the program thrived. In 1993, the Board of Directors, with broad community support, built a beautiful 12,500 square foot, $1.3 million center on lower Market Street in Youngstown. The mortgage for the new construction was paid off in three years, making Millcreek Children’s Center debt-free in 1996.

We have continued to grow, with increased enrollment and active parent and community support. Our parents expect and receive the best possible education available for their children, and we are dedicated to providing it for them.

Millcreek Children’s Center is a five-star rated facility as rated by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

We are a licensed childcare center that provides a structured atmosphere in line with a school setting. Creative Curriculum is our educational base, and we adhere to the Ohio Early Learning Development Standards.
