…and a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11:6

Welcome to the Rehoboth Learning Center

Our Mission is to lovingly teach, build character, and promote health of children through God’s Word in Jesus Christ.

We realize that when you are choosing educational programs and child care for your children you do have a choice. That is why we strive to offer the best programs in an environment that reinforces Christian values and supports the whole family. We provide child care services for children ages 2 through 13 years of age that engage each child and promote independence and creativity.

Our Philosophy

Rehoboth Learning Center is an outreach ministry of Rehoboth United Methodist Church, an organization dedicated to serving the Lord Jesus Christ in this community and throughout the world. It is our intention to carry out this ministry in the daily operation of RLC.

It is our belief that children are a gift from God, and as such, they deserve unconditional love, social guidance, acceptance, and affirmation. Our staff will use our individually unique talents and abilities to build positive, trusting relationships and bring out the strengths of every child in our care.

We believe that children are natural learners and that they learn best when given the opportunity and freedom to explore the world God created around them. It is our desire to create a nurturing, loving, environment which encourages a genuine enthusiasm for learning. Our staff will help children to grow and develop academically, spiritually, and physically.

We count it as a privilege that families trust in our abilities and give us the responsibility to care for their children. It is our desire to provide a safe environment in which every child will be valued and loved.

 

Programs

Our Twos Program
Turning two means an explosion of exploring independence and enhancing communication skills. The teachers at Rehoboth Learning Center provide a fun and active learning environment where our wonderful two’s can learn more about the world around them and begin to grow socially through small group peer interactions and support from the classroom teacher.

In our Two’s class we provide a balanced mixture of skill building play, quiet activities, and active play throughout our structured day. We partner with parents and children for a successful potty training experience at their individual pace.

Basic educational concepts are introduced such as color and shape recognition as well as counting and the alphabet. We introduce and reinforce these concepts through play, circle time, and lots of hands on learning activities.

Our Preschool Program
Our teachers work hard to develop an environment that promotes independence and self control, fosters a sense of trust, and encourages children to assert themselves in a socially acceptable manner. Through prayer, songs and stories we incorporate the teachings of Jesus Christ into our daily interactions.

Our highly qualified teachers use the thematic approach for lesson planning activities that are enjoyable for the children. The children learn through play geared according to the following domains:
•Language & Literacy
•Math
•Science
•Social Studies
•Art
•Physical Development
•Social-Emotional

Our curriculum encourages children to explore their interests and allows them to progress at their own developmental pace. Social interaction is also a large part of the curriculum at Rehoboth. The children learn the importance of getting along with others, helping, sharing, and the valuable role that each individual plays in the group. At Rehoboth we promote the growth of the whole child.

Our School Age Program
Rehoboth Learning Center’s School Age Program provides a safe and nurturing environment for students Kindergarten through 8th grade before and after school and full days when schools are closed. We currently serve Williamsport Elementary, Fountain Rock Elementary, Hickory Elementary, Lincolnshire Elementary, and Springfield Middle School. Before and after school care is available to students outside of our district as long as the parents provide transportation.

Our before and after school program offers recreation, arts and crafts, homework assistance, and Bible and devotional time. Our students receive an afternoon snack upon their arrival from school.
