Day School

Lake Wylie Area's Christian Preschool With a Heart for Kids

Children are our most precious gifts from God, and it is only natural that we would want the best for them.

The learning environment at The Day School at CCLW is handcrafted to weave together the latest research on children's development, the best techniques for Preschool instruction as well as the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. The result is a unique experience for your sweet child.

Just come in the door and see the wonderful, Christ-filled environment.

The Day School at CCLW has traditional classrooms, multi-purpose rooms and a full-sized gymnasium for play on cold and rainy days. For active boys and girls, this space is a HUGE blessing!

 

The staff at The Day School is committed to seeing children grow, learn and develop with excellence.

Here at The Day School at CCLW, we are committed to a shorter school day because we believe it provides for both corporate learning as well as that all-important family time. Family time during these ages is so crucial to emotional growth and development. Pair deliberate family time alongside the preschool's outstanding educational and development programs and your child will soar in school! Our expectations are for high parental involvement.
