Antioch Learning Center has been caring for children for more than 15 years. In those 15 years we have been an important part of the community. Our center has provided loving care and employment for countless neighbors and their children. Many of the children we've cared for have grown up and worked for the learning center and for many it has been a spring board to further their educational and professional careers. Some have grown up and are now bringing their children to us because they know from personal experience that their children will be well taken care of.
As a community of faith it is our belief that all children have the right to be cared for in an atmosphere of Christian love. The Antioch Learning Center is committed to providing a healthy, nurturing, spiritually centered, safe and happy place for each child to grow and develop. Our ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality care possible for children ages 2-12 years.
The learning center was incorporated in 2001, and is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE) as well as an Equal Opportunity Child Care Provider.
Each child brings with them their own unique personality and family experiences. The children develop at their own pace. Our open door policy encourages parents to participate and join in our various activities. We find that children's self-esteem is enhanced when they are aware that their parents care about and approve of their world (and day care is a very large part of their world). We advocate a team approach to child care. "Team" being home and the care giving environment working together.
