  • Values process not product

We seek to reveal and nurture the worth and dignity of each child, while fostering physical, social, moral, spiritual, and intellectual development – at the child’s own pace.  As a Reggio Emilia-inspired program, we approach teaching by first studying and documenting how each child learns. Using that information, our learning environments and activities are intentionally arranged to support our children’s mental and physical growth as they reason and construct, all while shaping their academic and social potential.


Children’s Enrichment Center is a Reggio-inspired Christian Learning Center. Here at CEC we marvel in the uniqueness of many styles and philosophies of teaching young children. We are a mixed blend of Reggio, Waldorf, Montessori and Nature Play-based. We are aware of the need of children to find their own style, their own pace and what will bring their personal learning and desire for learning to the highest level.

As a Christian child care center, we help children to learn compassion and respect for others, and an awareness of the world around them.
