We believe that childcare should be an extension of home
At HLC, we believe that children can learn and be anything when they know they are loved. That’s why there is always a smile and warm greeting from our staff when you come through our doors. We believe that childcare should be an extension of home, providing children and their parents with nurturing, love and comfort.
Our educated and qualified staff coupled with a low teacher turnover rate allows our students to form strong bonds with their caregivers, enhancing self-esteem and a sense of security. We pair that with stimulating activities and learning experiences to offer a brand of childcare that encourages every child to develop – even flourish – at his/her own pace.
Our student-driven, hands-on curriculum encourages touching, smelling, hearing and experiencing. We prescribe to the Chinese proverb…
In doing this we participate in activities like toddlers making lava lamps and babies squishing JELLO. Preschoolers marching around the block to mimic a Civil Rights demonstration, and measuring out milk to make pineapple upside cake.
Community service is a core component of HLC’s curriculum. Teaching children about their moral responsibility to the community around them is essential to building character. Students at HLC regularly visit assisted living centers and the elderly in the surrounding neighborhood to bring joy and to uplift the community. The center has raised thousands of dollars for cancer research with St. Jude and the Leukemia Lymphoma Society through bike-a-thons and marches. The center has also supported Art For Hospice by donating funds and artwork for seniors in nursing homes.
