we hope that each child will develop a basic understanding of God’s love,
God’s Word, and the principles of Christian living. Our teachers, assistants,
and aides must comply with the PA Department of Human Services' regulations regarding such things as education, annual training (including Pediatric First-Aid), and background checks.
We are proud to be a STAR 2 Center.

At RCELC, teachers are committed to providing care and early education in a loving and nurturing way. They work hard to provide a healthy, safe, and home-like environment. Teachers guide children’s learning and assess their progress in order to plan for the individual needs of each child. This will promote the acquisition of knowledge and seeds will be planted. Teachers understand the importance of providing lots of hands-on learning activities to explore the world that God made. Our goal is to help children grow and blossom into young people of character and integrity, the person God created them to be.

Our desire is to provide a quality early learning program for all children attending RCELC. We want to emphasize the basic skills of learning while complying with the directives from our regulating agencies. We also consider it a privilege to be able to provide a spiritual foundation for the children who attend RCELC. As our teachers display Christ-like attitudes and behaviors,
