Westlake Christian Academy’s early learning center is an exciting and engaging place to grow, play, and learn. Our play-based early learning program offers preschool for 3-year-olds and pre-kindergarten for 4-year-olds. Preschool and pre-k are offered as a morning class with the option to add afternoon enrichment.
Caring and nurturing teachers provide a safe, loving environment where children grow academically, spiritually, socially, and physically. Our literature-rich, Christ-centered curriculum includes a wide variety of multi-sensory activities that prepare children for success in school. Mornings are structured around play-based activities that incorporate developmental and academic goals. Students also learn how to participate in group activities, including morning circle time. Outdoor play and learning activities are incorporated daily (weather permitting).
Early Learning Center classes begin at 8:30 and end at 11:30, except on Late Start Fridays (9:10–12:00pm). The preschool and pre-k classes at Westlake operate as part of a school, rather than a daycare. As such, students are expected to arrive on time, before class starts, every day. This expectation may vary from daycares, which offer more flexibility with drop-off and pick-up times.

Preschool/Pre-K students may extend their day by staying for lunch, indoor/outdoor play, and rest time. Afternoon staff takes over from classroom teachers after 11:30 class dismissal.
Families may opt to schedule their child to stay fewer afternoons than mornings. However, students must attend class in the morning in order to stay for afternoon enrichment. The afternoon schedule is set for the entire school year and is billed in addition to morning class tuition, according to the family’s chosen tuition payment plan.
