McRae-Gaines Learning Center was founded in 1978 by the Mothers of Many* to provide quality childcare and education for children of all backgrounds, in a safe and nurturing environment that builds life-long love of learning and fosters a child’s individual success in partnership with their families, the community, and our supporters.

Today it serves children from 12 months-old through Second Grade.
