The Creative Learning Center in a ministry of LifePoint Church in Smyrna. Simply put, we want to love the kids and families that God brings to us.
Our philosophy maintains that a child should have a safe and nurturing environment in which to grow spiritually, socially, physically and emotionally. While teaching the children is our primary focus, we also seek to minister to the needs of the families.
Preschoolers learn through their five senses and those senses are developed through hands on developmentally appropriate activities. The Creative Learning Center provides a Christ centered atmosphere for children to learn and play. We believe our program is in part building a foundation for faith in preschoolers. We seek to enable them to grow and learn as children of God rooted in Christian values so that one day they can respond to Him in faith and love. Spiritual concepts are woven throughout the day’s instruction in Bible stories, songs and scripture. We strive to have children ready when they move on to “big school.” It is believed that children learn through watching, hearing, and modeling; therefore, every staff member and teacher is aware of the role they play in the Christian development of young children.
The Creative Learning Center also stresses that a child’s work is play. The importance of play and having a good time is at the heart of all teaching and instruction provided in our program.
We offer a 2 day program for 6 months-4 years of age. Children may attend our Monday/Wednesday program OR our Tuesday/Thursday program. We have a 4 day preK program for children who will enter kindergarten the next fall. The preK program is Monday-Thursday.

Here’s a great example of the impact CLC has on the kids in the program. This is the baptism video of Bethany Clardy. Notice that she thanks her CLC teachers who helped instill the foundation of Christ in her life while she was still a preschooler. This is what the ministry of CLC is all about.
