What We Believe

The purpose of our Early Learning Center is to provide parents with quality Christian childcare, to provide preschoolers with positive learning experiences, and to extend love and concern to families in our community. We enable preschoolers to grow in their understanding of themselves, their families & others in their world and guide the children in the awareness that God loves them. We use creative experiences such as music, art, play & reading. Our center also teaches the 8 Bible concepts (God, Jesus, the Bible, Church, Creation, Self, Family, Community & World). Our goal is to help meet your child's needs as they develop mentally, emotionally, socially, physically, and spiritually.


Pre-Kindergarten Program: This class includes curriculum that is educationally based with a strong Biblical foundation. This curriculum includes number & letter recognition as well as writing, reading, counting & math skills. We provide a structured program to help children learn to follow directions, and encourages socialization skills with peers preparing for the Kindergarten environment.  

School begins in September and ends in May.  We also offer a Summer Program from June to August.
