Champion Christian Learning Academy (CCLA) was created to ensure that students experience learning and loving at every age.
Current research has shown that children between the ages of newborn to five years old are the most sensitive Research also shows that a lot of the critical brain development takes place during these years. In fact, over 90% of the brain growth occurs during this period! This is when children develop their senses, language and communication skills, and social and emotional skills.
CCLA’s director decided to create a program that engages children at the beginning of brain development after she saw firsthand in the classroom as a teacher that school-aged students were not prepared for school and did not have a passion and love for learning.
CCLA strives to not only prepare children for life long learning, but also to immerse them with love so that they develop a love for learning and growing.
We keep Jesus as our foundation and we mold our learners into life long champions.
The mission of Champion Christian Learning Academy is to foster the love of learning and lay the groundwork for success at the school age level. CCLA provides stimulating early learning experiences that promote social/emotional, physical and cognitive development. We are committed to the families we serve, providing support and encouragement.
Champion Christian Leaning Academy believes that ALL children deserve the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, encouraging environment. We believe that because of the mandates on school aged children, they need to go to school prepared. We believe learning happens through positive relationships, exploration, experiences and sense of belonging.
We believe that children are capable of complex thinking and we encourage it. We are committed to program planning, in which activities “emerge” based on ideas and interests from both children and staff. CCLA provides personalized and developmentally appropriate programs for infants, toddlers, preschool, and pre-kindergarteners.
