Vision MISSION STATEMENT

Loving Shepherd Early Learning Center (LSELC) exists  to provide Christian nurture, support, and    education to parents and children,  so that they may know Jesus and touch the lives of others with His
love.

PURPOSE

LSELC is committed to work in partnership with parents to provide the best care possible for children. In a caring, Christian atmosphere children explore their environment and receive guidance in participation to increase self-esteem and personal success. Safe and secure age-appropriate learning is  emphasized. Christian education and values are integrated into daily living and curriculum.

PHILOSOPHY

It is the philosophy of LSELC that young children learn most effectively when they have the opportunity to explore their environment and experience a variety of materials and situations while they play. We also believe in a responsive, developmental approach to early childhood learning which emphasizes that each child develops at their own rate and that progress is measured individually rather than in comparison to  other children in the group.

LSELC is a Christ-centered program. Learning experiences are  taught from the Christian perspective that each child is a child of God and that all people are deserving of respect as creatures of God. In accordance with this philosophy, we include prayer, worship,  Bible stories and teaching, and service to others as part of our curriculum.
