Our Mission

 
 

Our preschool was founded over 30 years ago as a ministry of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church. Our facilities feature spacious, bright, and modern classrooms, a fenced playground, a qualified and educated teaching staff with over 100 years of combined teaching experience, and a classroom ratio of 1:10.  The team at St. Alban’s Christian Learning Center is committed to educating and nurturing the children and families we provide care for in the best manner possible. We understand how busy our families are and we are here to help with exceptional preschool and childcare services located in Sinking Spring, PA.

Philosophy

St. Alban’s Christian Learning Center’s learning environment and preschool education philosophy is based on the latest research regarding social and emotional development, how children think and learn, and on the principles of physical development. We believe that children learn best through play, interaction, and repetition. The needs and interest of the children directly influence the themes and activities we plan. Our curriculum prepares children for the structure-based classroom approach that children will encounter upon starting their elementary education experience. Our environment invites children to observe, make choices, and experiment using a hands-on approach to learning. We address all areas of development: social, emotional, physical (fine and gross motor skills), creative, cognitive, and language development. Our preschool and childcare classrooms are set up in learning centers, with carefully planned activities to correlate with a monthly theme that facilitates learning and provide opportunities to master early learning concepts.

Faith

Children of all faith traditions, including none, are welcome and embraced at St. Alban’s Christian Learning Center. Positive moral values are taught to our students and undercut our entire curriculum. SACLC strives to teach children respect, gratitude, understanding, and forgiveness. The children attend weekly chapel and are invited throughout the year to participate in philanthropy to assist the communities we serve. We strive to empower children by identifying, acknowledging, and appreciating the talents of each child and help them understand that they are accepted and valued for their uniqueness.
