Little Lions Learning Center

Little Lions provides a classical Christian education that prepares preschool age children for success at CPLS. Every aspect of the program is designed to work with the natural inclinations of developing minds and guide students in a spirit of discovery.

Each day is structured to build confidence, foster independence, and prepare students for a healthy start to their education. God has designed young children to enjoy creative movement, great music, literature that builds their vocabulary, beautiful art, and outdoor activities that allow them to explore their world and the glory of God’s creation.

Our teachers express clear instructions, demonstrate abundant grace, and understand the significant changes that are taking place in the lives of our youngest students. This is an exciting time in your child’s development, and it is our pleasure to share it with you!

Thematic units engage, integrate, and teach across all subjects. The classrooms are literacy-rich spaces that emphasize the importance of speaking, memorizing, reading, and writing.
