UC Early Learning Center serves as the earliest discipleship opportunity for kids ages two to five years old. Currently in its 27th year, UCELC continues to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual development of young children, allowing them to grow and develop just as Jesus did.
UCELC is currently 65% full for the next school year (spaces still available in 2s, 3s, and VPK programs). As an effort to connect with families, the school hosts many events throughout the year that involve the parents:
• Valentine’s Town (students explored love and friendship through a town-based theme)
• World Cultures week (in which families came in to share stories, food, dress, songs and games from their country of heritage)
“In the year and a half since I have come on board as the Director of the Early Learning Center, I have had numerous experiences in which the church has proven to me that we are truly a connected family worshiping a wonderful God. We are not in competition for time, money, resources, space or people! And because of that spirit we can serve our community in a way that reaches deeper than it would if we were all vying for space.”
—Jamie Deger, UC Early Learning Center Director
