The Children's Learning Center News



The Children’s Learning Center is official and all moved into our new location. December and January brought a lot of changes and a few tears, as we left a school that we had occupied since 2001. But we forged ahead and could not be happier! The new school/location is amazing and parents, children and staff are settling in, and quickly adjusting to the newness. 

We love the open feeling and having the kitchen as the focal point and entry way to the classrooms. It makes for a sense of security and “hominess.”

And, have you seen the playground? It is packed full of activities for all ages. The children can’t wait to explore the playground every day. In case you didn’t know, THE ROCK also made the trip from the old school. That made Ms. Martha really happy!!!!!!!!

Parking has been a little adjustment because the lot is so much smaller than our old one. But everyone seems to be trying hard to follow the arrows and abide by the unspoken rules. Please be aware that while parking under the canopy is not suggested, there are times when it is necessary. An example is a mom with twin infants………… or the day when it is raining.  I hope that if you park under the canopy, that you are considerate and drop or pick your child up quickly, allowing for other parents to do the same. And, if you are waiting to do the same, BE NICE. There may come a day when real rules will have to be set, but I am hoping that we, as adults, can figure this out on our own.

We are happy that you have chosen to stay with us, and are looking forward to other families joining us in the very near future.

valentinesday2020VALENTINE'S DAY

It’s never too early to help children express love and friendship in ways that transcend materialism.  Because young children are concrete thinkers, it’s hard for them to understand a concept that can’t be represented by objects.  But by watching you give gifts of kindness, time, compassion, respect, and thoughtfulness to the people you love ---not just on holidays but throughout the year---they will learn that “I love you” means so much more than three words inscribed on a candy heart.


Do you need a form to claim child care fees for 2019?  You may obtain this form at the front desk or by e-mailing Ms. Andrea at They only take a few seconds to complete.
