El Campito was founded in 1970 to aid migrant families in coping with the struggles of starting a new life in South Bend. Ignacio and Concepcion Nino offered child care services for working families in their home, and then in the neighborhood.
El Campito Child Development Center provides high-quality early childhood education based on the HighScope philosophy for children walking ages to kindergarten entrance. Active learning based on solid development principles is implemented to foster physical, emotional, social, and intellectual capacities in all children. Nutritious meals and snacks are provided daily.
