The Early Learning Center uses a hands-on approach to learning. We adhere to the philosophy that children learn best by doing. Therefore, our students experience a variety of activities in which they are active participants. We believe it is important to provide an environment that will nurture the development of the whole child. Implicit in this philosophy is the awareness of a child's need to be taught of God's love, as expressed by the Christian faith.  

Our philosophy
