RSVP for our Grandparents and Special Friends Celebrations the Week of April 15th!

The early childhood program at CCLS carries out its vision to transform lives through Christ-centered education in the exceptional care and rich learning environment we provide.  In partnership with our families, we endeavor to grow our littlest ones into all that God created them to be. Children are encouraged to experience the wonders of learning and joys of growing in a safe and developmentally appropriate environment. We consider it a great privilege to serve our families, wrapped in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Partnering with our parents, CCLS facilitates a nurturing atmosphere that inspires each child’s curiosity and individualized growth through faith-based learning.


One-year-olds are explorers, inquisitive and on the move. We encourage this natural curiosity through purposefully designed activities, promoting physical, mental, social, and spiritual growth.


Stemming from a play-based environment, students will learn about themselves and the world that God created. We seek to foster explosive growth in language development and socialization.


Through Christ-centered, differentiated instruction, we assist students in building early math skills, exploring science, reading and writing, all while embracing the fun that comes with being three-years old.


Building upon their foundation in education, we seek to expand students’ knowledge in all areas of development in a Christ-centered, learning-rich environment. We encourage them to problem solve and grow in autonomy, securing confidence in their abilities and readiness for kindergarten success.
