Love, learning, and laughter

We Provide Quality Teaching and the latest Curriculum

By trained and skilled caregivers

"The Creative Curriculum for Preschool and Toddlers is an
award-winning curriculum for preschool success. Comprising The Foundation, five research-based volumes that provide the knowledge base of the curriculum, and the Daily Resources, which offer step-by-step guidance in the form of Teaching Guides and additional daily teaching tools, The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is fully aligned with the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework and state early learning standards."

"Teaching Strategies GOLD offers a revolutionary approach to early childhood assessment. It is an assessment tool available to teachers that is user-friendly and inclusive—one that enables them to increase the effectiveness of their assessments while having more time to spend with children. It’s easy to use, it’s effective, and it works—saving teachers time and helping them be confident in their assessment decisions." 

Mission Statement
The Learning Center is a non-profit ministry of Forest Hills Presbyterian Church. We participate in Five Stars for Kids. Our basic purpose is to provide Christ-centered care, education, and guidance for all children and families in our community. Love, learning, and laughter go together in a childcare program. We will, by our example, strive to show our students of all ages, The True and Good Way, and to provide them with successful and joyful days to reflect upon.
