All Inspections and Reports Are Available Upon Request
We believe that children learn best in an environment, which promotes exploration, creativity, and learning experiences through various media and play. We recognize each child as an individual with special needs and different goals. We are dedicated to fulfilling these needs and meeting these goals on an individual basis. Our goal is to nurture and facilitate growth of the whole child to his or her greatest potential by providing a safe, loving, caring, and enriched environment for each child. No child will be discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, religion or sex.
At Rhema Knights Learning Center Learning Center, classrooms are designed around specific “learning centers.” Using these centers, the child moves around freely and learns by “doing.” As children select activities, they develop social and communication skills, encounter problems, and work out solutions while gaining confidence and high self-esteem.
Parents are always welcome! Suggestions and ideas are always appreciated. Parents, we have an open-door policy. This means you can stop by anytime of the day during business hours. All activity areas are immediately available for viewing. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. Please remember we are here to assist you in the developmental growth of your child/ren.
