General Information


The purpose of the Early Learning Center at University Baptist Church is to teach your child in a loving, Christian environment while helping them to grow physically, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.  We strive to provide a well-balanced program that not only benefits your child but also supports, encourages, and ministers to your family.

Our teaching staff is dedicated to make the ELC program a positive learning experience for preschoolers.  Our classrooms are arranged in play-learning centers, and children are able to make choices and participate in small group activities.  By using the Christian-based curriculum “WEE Learn,” we are promoting hands-on experiences that are meaningful to the young child. 

All of the ELC classes offer age-appropriate, hand-on activities that promote developmental skills.  At the preschool level, we stress pre-reading and pre-writing activities.  These help young children to develop the basic skills necessary to read and write.
