The Mt. Pleasant Schools’ Children’s Learning Center was established in 1982 in conjunction with the Mt. Pleasant Area Technical Center. We are a year round child-care center as well as a laboratory site for area high school students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Program. The Children’s Learning Center is a social/emotional-based center. Each level, infant through preschool, operates with a primary teacher or caregiver. We provide lots of individualized attention for each child. Our environment offers a safe place where children can play, explore, learn important social skills, and develop emotionally and cognitively. Our goal is to create a strong foundation for life long learning.
Our center is open to the public and serves children from six weeks to preschool age. The Center provides breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Parents provide personal supplies for their child (diapers, wipes, change of clothing). Our budget is supported with bi-weekly tuition payments. Hours of operation are 6:30a.m. to 6:00p.m.
