NLC - The Neighborhood Learning Center

NLC - The Neighborhood Learning Center

A childcare center serving infants aged 6 weeks and older through 5th grade. Offers Preschool, Before and After School Care with transport to/from school.

The Neighborhood Learning Center strives to provide a loving Christian environment in which children can grow and mature spiritually, socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. We know that a child’s early years provide a critical foundation of growth and development for the rest of the child’s life. Children are challenged to achieve their full potential through an academic curriculum and structured activities. The preschool program emphasizes academic preparedness while keeping in mind that children learn better when they are happy and having fun. The after-school program maintains the same high academic expectations, with tutoring and enrichment activities available. The Center’s programs are all based on a belief that the seeds for creativity, tolerance, neighborliness, and acceptance are all planted early and must be nurtured through a program that continually models these values. All the staff of the Center recognize that they are not just teachers, they are models.

Happy Thursday Everyone!!! ❤️

Water play started off with a splash this week!

Our Summer Campers had a wonderful visit with the Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company No. 2 this week.

A great BIG thank you to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Department and Purcellville Police Department and the officers who visited us yesterday to kick off our Community Helpers theme this week!
