About Us & Contact


The Child Care Consortium envisions a community in which all children have access to high quality, educational, developmentally appropriate child care that enables their parents to work to support and better the circumstances of their families.

The mission of The Child Care Consortium, doing business as Imagination Station Child Development Center and Head Start of LaPorte County, is to improve the quality and accessibility of child care for the community and increase public awareness of the importance of quality early childhood experiences.
