The Orchard Park Learning Center (OPLC) is located at Orchard Park Presbyterian Church. We serve children ages one to five. OPLC educates children by inspiring curiosity through play, nurturing compassion and reflecting God’s love for all.
The Learning Center is a play based (or child centered) preschool. We believe that children learn best through play! Play allows children to make observations and connections that are meaningful to the world around them. Within each class' daily schedule, children are given a multitude of options of what they want to play at any given time. This allows the child's creativity and unique individual interests to come shining through! The teachers act as a facilitator of learning and continually weaves literacy and math skills in all the various areas. Our priority is helping children develop the social and emotional skills that are needed for life long learning.
As a Christian preschool, our goal is to make each child feel loved, secure and free to develop the God-given characteristics that make each child special and unique. Classes have a dedicated bible time each day. The youngest children spend their bible time in the classroom, while the older children utilize the children's chapel daily. During this time the class engages in interactive and age appropriate bible stories, play, and songs.
