Encompass Early Education & Care

Encompass Early Education & Care, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization providing the highest quality education and care for children and support for families with a commitment to compassion, quality and advocacy (Mission Statement).

Encompass was established in 1919 as Green Bay Day Nursery.  In 1950, the Service League of Green Bay assumed sponsorship and was an involved and active manager until the 1980's.  In 1991, the organization was incorporated under the name of Encompass Child Care, Inc.   In 2006, the name was officially changed to Encompass Early Education and Care, Inc. which more accurately identifies the importance that early education, combined with quality nurturing care,  plays in the development of healthy children at our centers.

At Encompass Early Education & Care, Inc. Quality Counts.  Encompass operates seven licensed child care locations in Green Bay and De Pere serving over 700 children each day.  All Encompass centers are nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).  Less than 5%  of Wisconsin child care centers achieve this designation.  Encompass also participates in YoungStar, which is Wisconsin's Child Care Rating Program.  YoungStar is a five-star quality rating and improvement system for child care in Wisconsin.  Encompass centers which are Nationally Accredited are also rated as five-star.

Encompass functions under an active, voluntary Board of Directors whose responsibility is to provide guidance and oversight regarding agency policies and procedures.  The Board has an ongoing commitment to improve the work environment for staff and to maintain quality standards for children.
