Welcome to Christ the King
Early Childhood Learning Center


  • Our Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) educates and cares for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Infant program: 6 weeks-12 mos.; Toddler program: 1yr - 3 yr; Preschool: 3yrs - 5years
  • We believe that the life skills we pass on to each and every child are the ability of strength and autonomy that are fundamental to being successful students with the skills necessary to be well-rounded, well-adjusted life-long learners.

  • Our mission is to provide a quality, age appropriate, Catholic educational setting to develop children with active and creative minds.

  • Our philosophy is that each child will have their days filled with experiences of touch, choice and conversations that satisfy children’s natural desire to learn. We believe that faith development is an essential element of educating children; that it is essential to stress the total development of each child: spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.

  • Our curriculum planning focuses on opportunities for children’s development through investigation, experimentation and observation. We believe play is the most important process through which children learn.

  • We believe that a qualified, dedicated staff of teachers is critical to the development and maintenance of a quality early education program.

  • We offer ratios in our Infant and Toddler Program of 4 to 1 for infants and 4 to 1 for toddlers.

  • Our preschool ratio for ages 3-5 years have a 10 to 1 ratio.

  • The Center hours are 7:00 AM to 5:45 PM Monday through Friday.

  • We offer full or part time educational care with a drop-in option for children already enrolled.

  • The Center is open year-round with 10 holidays and 2 professional development days.
