Midland ISD understands that students and teachers are our most valuable asset. Without strong teachers who are passionate about serving the needs of our students, we cannot achieve academic success. In an effort to better serve our students and to better recruit and retain our staff, Midland ISD utilizes existing facilities to provide high-quality childcare for our teen parents and employees with young children. Our Early Learning Centers have both received the Texas Rising Star 4-star rating, which is the highest rating possible from the Texas Workforce Commission.

LOCATION Midland ISD offers teen parent and employee childcare at two locations: Coleman Early Learning Center, 1600 E Golf Course Road and Jones Early Learning Center, 126 Thornridge Drive.
Families can indicate their preferred location upon enrollment.

Childcare will follow the teacher calendar with the last day of care on last day of school for students.

$600/month per child
