At Christian Learning Center they believe the best preschool experience comes from providing opportunities for learning and growth through development, age-appropriate exploration, discovery, and hands-on experiences within a caring, fun, safe, Christ-centered setting. They believe each child is unique and special with their own method of learning.

They believe in providing a positive environment with a variety of learning styles where children thrive in becoming enjoy their first introduction to school. Circle time is an important part of each day where they learn about letters, shapes, colors, numbers, and a theme such as Community Helpers, Dinosaurs, Polar Animals, etc.

The themes provide the foundational learning needed to prepare a child for kindergarten as well as Bible-based building blocks of learning for a child’s spiritual growth. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of character traits such as love, kindness, and compassion for one another.
