Our Philosophy

SSLC’s philosophy is based on the belief that early Christian education provides an essential part of the development and growth of an individual. It is the desire of the Center to guide and nurture each child, which will enable students to reach their God-given potential. SSLC is open to children and families of all faiths. Our message is: God loves us and cares for us.

SSLC provides children with the opportunity to learn through play by using early childhood developmentally appropriate practices.
