Little Lions Learning Center

You are giving your child the best possible start at the Little Lions Learning Center. We integrate Bible verses and stories into daily, multi-sensory activities such as music, singing, physical education and movement, art and creative play.

At the Little Lions Learning Center, you will see your child develop skills in many areas, including:

  • Christ-like behavior
  • Phonics and reading readiness
  • Math skills
  • Good work habits
  • Self-discipline and obedience
  • Social interaction
  • Listening and speaking
  • Fine and gross motor movement

Full-day Little Lions also receive instruction in library, music and physical education. All students take field trips to places such as an apple orchard and/or the Muncie Children’s Museum.
