Weekday Learning Center

Manley has a Weekday Learning Center that offers quality childcare for preschool and school-aged children in a safe, caring environment. Our philosophy is to provide a warm and loving atmosphere where all children will grow and develop physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually. The strengths of our program lie in our staff’s individual skills. Our staff members are trained professionals who provide developmentally appropriate activities to enhance the natural learning process and to ensure successful learning experiences; which will in turn, develop a positive self-image in each child.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old , he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

Our teachers plan learning activities which include weekly units of study as well as Bible story units using the Wee Learn curriculum. We want learning to be fun and the children to know how much Jesus loves them! Our Learning Centers include science, math, reading, dramatic play, blocks, music, writing and art.

We accept enrollment for children ages six weeks to five years of age for full time care. Part-time enrollment begins after the child is three years old. We also provide child care services for school-age children through fifth grade during the summer and on days that public schools are closed.

The Weekday Learning Center is directed by Gail Russell and assisted by Debbie Cope.  Feel free to call 423 586 8665, ext. 245 or send an e-mail via our Contact Us form to submit any questions.
