The Children’s Learning Center is a model early childhood program designed especially for children eighteen months to 12 years old which provides an optimal setting for learning and play. Enrollment is open to children of LCCC and University Partnership students, non-credit students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the community.

The classrooms are arranged in attractive learning centers designed to capture the children’s interests, natural curiosity, and eagerness to learn. Each center enhances one or more areas of a child’s development. The curriculum, which is aligned with the Ohio Department of Education Early Learning Content Standards, includes lessons to promote academic skills with the primary focus on literacy and math. Activities and materials are multi-leveled and open-ended to provide challenges for each child and to enhance his/her individual development.

The professional teaching staff is well trained and all hold college degrees with specialization in early childhood education. The staff is enhanced with students from the Early Childhood Education program, as well as other degree programs, who participate in the daily activities in the classrooms.

The center is licensed by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services and meets or exceeds all requirements. The Children’s Learning Center is open year round with hours tailored to meet the needs of the students. It is conveniently located on the north end of campus.
