Proverbs 22:6
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Our desire is to REACH all people as we ENGAGE needs in the community, AWAKEN spiritual growth and LAUNCH everyone into service as modeled by Jesus. We aspire to be REAL!

Explore and Grow Christian Learning Center exists to:
  1. Support families by providing quality childcare and preschool in a safe and nurturing environment.
  2. Present a child-centered curriculum that encourages children to be active participants in the learning process by exploration of a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities and materials.
  3. Promote the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual growth of the child.
  4. Provide an atmosphere that is safe and positive where children can develop a good sense of self and healthy relationships with many types of people.
