Our Vision
As a child care service provider, we share a vision that all children learn and grow in a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment.    

Our Mission

It is the mission of Child Care & Learning Center to provide a loving, supportive, safe and educational environment for families who need preschool care for their children. Our focus is to provide stimulating early care and educational experience, which promotes each child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.


Our Goals

  • Providing a safe, healthy, and attractive environment for the children.
  • Striving to be the best teachers we can be.
  • Providing physical activities that support large and small muscle development.
  • Supporting children's desires to be lifelong learners.
  • Providing age-appropriate activities that encourage curiosity and the use of the five senses.
  • Ensuring the safety of our children during all routines and activities while being alert and attentive at all times.
  • Supporting social and emotional development and providing positive guidance.
  • Teaching acceptance and respect for the feelings of others.
  • Developing caring and sharing partnerships with all parents. Communication is provided through newsletters, daily report forms, daily conversations, and parent-teacher conferences. 
  • Continuing to grow as professionals while being positive role models.


Our Philosophy

At the Child Care & Learning center, children are given the opportunity to explore materials and participate in a variety of experiences. Activities are carefully planned and implemented in an open-classroom setting. Children are free to choose from a variety of age-appropriate activities including art, music, language development, pre-math skills, science and nature, and dramatic play. Children develop self-esteem, independence and problem-solving skills as they make choices and assist in planning the environment and activities.

Child Care & Learning Center is a happy place where each child feels that he or she belongs. Children are treated with respect and kindness. We recognize that children develop at different rates and have different interests. Small group size and appropriate teacher to child ratios allow for meeting the individual needs of each child.


About Us

With 17 combined years of excellence in early childhood education, the Child care & Learning Center is a for-profit organization providing high quality programs and services while being a great place to work. 

Child Care & Learning Center Corp is a Child Care provider for the School Readiness and voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program in Lake County. These programs provide funds from the Early Learning Coalition to help families provide quality daycare for their children. Being a provider for the Lake county School Readiness program, our facility must provide a Developmentally Appropriate Practices Curriculum, approved by the Early Learning Coalition of Lake county. We use the DLM Early Childhood Express Curriculum for our pre-school children and the Infant-Toddler Planning Guide for our toddlers' curriculum.

The DLM Early Childhood Express
is a holistic, child-centered program that nurtures each child by offering carefully selected and sequenced learning experiences. It provides a wealth of materials and ideas to foster the social-emotional, intellectual, and physical development of children. At the same time, it nurtures the natural curiosity and sense of self that can serve as the foundations of a lifetime of learning. 

The Infant-Toddler Planning Guide
from the Kaplan Early Learning Company uses a theme based approach; each developmentally appropriate activity involves language, cognitive, gross motor, fine motor, self-help, and social emotional skills. It provides a variety of activities to meet the rapidly changing needs and interests of this age group. Activities foster emotional security, positive self-concepts, in addition to physical and cognitive development. They are organized around typical routines that happen throughout the day, such as meal time, nap time, their play interests (such as arts and blocks), and are coded to identify the development areas being stimulated.
