Creative Learning Campus
Preschool & Daycare
Welcome to the Creative Learning Campus
We are a vibrant ministry of Community Lutheran Church. We are so very happy that you are interested in enrolling your child with us for your preschool and daycare needs. Please take a look around our site and find us on Facebook for all of the latest and greatest happenings!
Creative Learning Campus Exists...
To meet the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs of children. Through hands-on activities and experiential learning opportunities in art, music, language, science and math, the children develop the skills necessary for kindergarten. As a Christian preschool and daycare, Christ’s love is shared with the children through Bible stories, prayers, and songs.
Meet The CLC Teachers
The Creative Learning Campus recognizes the individuality of each child and that the intellectual and academic growth of young children is developmental. For example, children must learn to crawl before they can walk. Similarly, children must develop small muscle skills before they can write. Therefore, materials, experiences, and equipment are provided so that each child develops in proportion to his or her level of maturity. On a daily basis your child will have the opportunity for the following: planned activities and experiences to develop large and small muscle skills, self-directed play, outdoor play (weather permitting) or use of the gym, learning centers, snack time, creative play, story time and developing relationships with teachers and peers.
We are so excited that you’re here. Enrollment is the most important step to get your child into Creative Learning Campus. The rest of this page will walk you through how to do it. There are several requirements that must be met to enroll your child. If you’re ever confused or need help, please just call the the church at 734-782-0563 and ask for Chytia!
- You must fill out the Registration Form and it must be submitted with a $75 deposit fee. Enrollment & Registration Policy.
- Your child must be fully potty trained by the first day of attendance. This means that the child must be able to clean themselves by wiping and washing their hands without help from the staff. Accidents do happen though so we ask that you send in a spare set of the child’s clothes in a labeled Ziploc bag for us to keep in the restrooms.
- We prefer that your child be 3 by September 1 of the enrolling year to attend a 3’s class or 4 by September 1st of the enrolling year to attend a 4’s class. This is to ensure that all children attending will have the same needs and that the teachers can support them to the best of their ability.
Prior to acceptance, parents need to make the school aware of any special medical or physical needs of the child to be enrolled. The needs of the child will then be evaluated on an individual basis. Acceptance of the child will be based on the best interest of the child as well as our ability to meet his or her needs.
If you would like a daytime tour of the preschool, please call to schedule an appointment. You are welcome to bring your child!
The first week of March is National Lutheran Schools week which means fun dress up days and our annual Book Bingo Night. Families can come back to school for a yummy pizza dinner and then stick around to play the timeless game of bingo to win books to take home! Families are invited to bring aunts, grandmas and grandpas to join in the fun. This is always a great event and completely free to our preschool families.
We love Halloween here at Community Lutheran and we host an amazing trunk or treat the Wednesday before Halloween. We have over 30 trunks outside and an entire school hallway decorated for even more inside fun.
This is a program designed to help children get used to eating lunch away from home and in a classroom setting. Teachers are on hand to help them open their lunch items and monitor the rooms. We also help the children learn some independence in cleaning up after themselves and packing away their things when they are done. After they are all cleaned up, they are given extra playtime and who doesn’t love extra play time? Lunch Bunch starts in mid-September and runs through May.
Wild Wednesdays is our summer program designed to keep children involved in learning and interacting with their peers in a structured and fun setting. Parents have the option of signing up for the morning each Wednesday in June and July from 9:00 am – 12 pm. Our certified preschool and daycare teachers plan and lead each day’s activities. Included in the fun are whole group and individual activities in science, math, pre-reading and writing, exploration, free play, art and music! We serve a healthy snack, mid-morning. Lunch is not served. Wild Wednesdays is available to children who are already 3-years, 4-years, or 5-years old at the start of summer (June). Children should be potty trained. Children do not need to be enrolled at Creative Learning Campus and they do not need to be members of Community Lutheran Church. The cost is $15 per Wednesday per child and $10 per Wednesday for a second child (sibling). Please call the church/school office (734-782-0563) for more information or to sign up your child for WW’s!
