Learning Center

The Orchard Park Learning Center (OPLC) is located at Orchard Park Presbyterian Church. We serve children ages two 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, faith-based preschool. Play allows children to make observations and connections that are meaningful to the world around them. Within each class's daily schedule, children are given a multitude of options to explore. This allows the child's creativity and unique individual interests to come shining through! Teachers act as a facilitator of learning while weaving literacy, math and social skills into each day. Our teachers are the heart and soul of our school and our educational programming. OPLC teachers work diligently to create relevant learning opportunities in a safe and loving environment. Faith is nurtured by all our staff to help our children know that each is blessed, gifted and loved by God.
