ABOUT THE EARLY LEARNING CENTER
Balance with Excellence
Choosing a preschool program can be a daunting process for a parent. With the increasing demands on today's kindergarteners, many parents are concerned about equipping their child to handle the academic, social, and emotional requirements of a formal education; however, parents also just want to know that their children are safe, treasured, and loved. And for Christian parents, it is important that children are taught to pursue a relationship with their Heavenly Father. Sometimes parents feel as though a program can only excel in one of these domains, so they have to sacrifice in one area to gain in another.
We believe a program needs to be many different things because children are multifaceted and complex, not one dimensional. At Life Community ELC, our goal is to minister to the whole child.
The mission of Life Community Early Learning Center is to foster social, emotional, academic, and spiritual growth, preparing children for school and a lifetime of learning while teaching them that God loves them and wants a relationship with them.
Striving for total excellence is a constant balancing act, but our children deserve nothing less.

At LCC ELC, we believe in "intentional play." Using an integrated, thematic curriculum that focuses on pretend play, gross and fine motor skills, math and literacy, STEM activities, and more, children will have an opportunity to work both cooperatively and independently in centers while participating in role play, engaging in real-life problem-solving, and practicing early literacy skills. The monthly theme is highly engaging and allows teachers to sneak learning in while kids are having fun. We believe that children learn best while playing and that a child's first exposure to "school" should be enjoyable and rewarding while preparing them for a lifetime of learning!
In addition to our thematic curriculum, we will also teach Bible stories every week from the Jesus Storybook Bible and show the children that the God's great plan for salvation is woven all throughout Scripture. Additionally, we will have a music program that will integrate Bible and classroom content with age-appropriate music curriculum.
