Mission Statement

The Early Learning Center is a ministry of Stillwater Church. It is our desire to teach God’s love and exemplify Jesus in our daily interactions with children. We strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment coupled with quality, age-appropriate education for children six-weeks old through K4.

Teaching Philosophy

We work to incorporate biblical principles throughout our learning opportunities while providing a Christian perspective of the world. We believe that the love of Christ can be experienced early in a child’s development. Our team of early childhood educators strives to use developmentally appropriate practices, focusing on the child’s social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical growth. Intentional small class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratios allow for individualized attention and success during whole class, teacher-directed instruction. Child-directed activity centers coupled with hands-on experiences engage each child’s natural curiosity and encourage the exploration of God’s world at a child’s own pace.
The Early Learning Center works cooperatively with parents to implement the process of a Christian education. We welcome a diversity of children who can experience God’s love, grow in it, and carry it into the world.
