A Unique Approach

Our Vision

Living Word Early Learning Center, as a ministry of Living Word Church, exists to nurture a love for learning in all children;  prepare students for success in their future academic life; and build relationships with families in the community by sharing God’s truth and love. 

Our Mission

The mission statement of LWELC is to nurture the "whole child" in areas of academic, social, physical, emotional, creative, and spiritual development. This will be achieved through providing a variety of activities that are developmentally appropriate and recognizing the individual needs and differences of all children. Through Christian principles and teacher directed activities, children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and life-long learners. 

Our Core Values

As a Christian preschool, we believe that God has an active part of all aspects of our lives. Therefore, we lead all activities with this in mind.

  • Our professional staff models the school’s Christian philosophies to the children and families.

  • Children and families of all faiths are accepted and loved unconditionally.

  • We foster a family environment where every student/family/staff member is cared for.

  • We are committed to providing an affordable program which includes financial assistance for those in need.

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. We accept the New Covenant as recorded in the New Testament as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (2nd Timothy 3:16, 1st Thessalonians 2:13, 2nd Peter 1:21)
