Autumn Creek Learning Center was formed to provide early childhood education in
a home like environment that will be conducive to a child's total growth and
development. Autumn Creek opened in September of 1999 with a brand new
facility. We have a wonderful scenic view with landscaped play areas built
specifically for our age groups. Our classrooms feature large open rooms with activity

children to develop self-discipline, self-esteem, problem solving skills, and
assisting them in creating a stronger sense of themselves.
the heart of teacher and child interaction, is a simple but heartfelt philosophy;
"Teachers must deal with children with humor, compassion, and
importance of modeling the appropriate behavior...giving children
options...helping children to express their feelings...the concept of
re-direction...dealing with the needs of the individual child.
Our goals are to:
Help children grow up in a safe and nurturing environment; at the same time,
assist them to become self reliant and independent.
Use age appropriate methods to satisfy each child's physical, emotional and
intellectual needs. Help children explore their environment through play.
Offer children a home away from home and help them adapt both socially and
intellectually to a broader diverse environment.
